Disable: MacBook Pro (15” and 16”) Boot on Lid Open (MacBook Pro Powers on After Opening Lid)

The latest MacBook Pro’s (2016 and newer) have a confusing feature that many users are not adapting to. Whenever you open your MacBook Pro screen, it automatically powers on. You can disable your MacBook Pro from auto-powering on when the lid is open by disabling an option Apple introduced called auto boot.

 

  1. Open Terminal and type:
 

sudo nvram AutoBoot=%00

 

Macbook pro disable power on lid open terminal nvram auto boot command

 

 

Now, your MacBook Pro will no longer boot on lid open.

 

To re-apply boot on Lid Open, open Terminal and type:

 

sudo nvram AutoBoot=%03
