Archived - Target Display mode may not work after waking from sleep

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.


Sometimes after waking a portable computer from sleep that is connected by a Mini DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort cable to an iMac (27-inch, Late 2009) in Target Display Mode, the image from the iMac appears on the iMac screen instead of the image from the portable.


Download and install the 27-inch iMac SMC Firmware Update 1.0 to address this issue.
