    Default Anybody mirror their laptop to an ipad for traktor?

    Title says it all, after seeing the s8 thought I'd like to mirror my airbook to my ipad wondering what people's experience is. Thanks.

    Yep, I do using splashtop. Works just fine.

    I use DVS and so I only need the screen for the browser view so i can see track name and track bpm. I sometimes put it under the booth, as I really only look at it when selecting songs.

    Cool follow up question, do you use a third part app to be able to close the laptop or almost close it without it sleeping?

    Closed laptops overheat faster.

    Gonna need a reference for that. Ive never come across a problem caused by a laptop being on and closed with the screen off.

    Both Windows and MacOSX support this in their Energy settings control panels.

    Can't find it under mine, did read something about usb keyboards or flash drives and a workaround. Did also read about overheating so I mentioned almost closed. Apple thread about people wanting to use itunes with it closed.

    Other than it being common knowledge, the fact that keyboards get warm under heavy use, and the fact that I've had it happen....no. Go find evidence that contradicts it.

    I do the same, using splashtop. Great little program, I use a wireless mouse with it though as using a touchscreen can be a bit fiddly.

    Always keep my windows laptop fully closed and have never had any overheating issues.
