Flight Mode for Mac
Having pulled out my laptop, whilst sat on a flight to NY, it occurred to me that there should be a flight mode for laptops (if this doesn’t already exist?!).
- Turn off wifi
- Turn off Bluetooth
- Save battery
The save battery one is where some customisation may come in:
Kill non-essential running software.
e.g software that depends on an Internet connection. Examples on my machine include: Buffer for Mac, Google Drive, Shazam. Ask to Save before closing!
Brightness level to be determined in Preferences by user.
- Menu Bar App activated by a single click.
- Remember pre-flight mode status.
Restore whatever software the user was running and what settings they had prior to switching to flight-mode.
