    You might need to open it if you use the standard Mac Pac cable to sleep and wake up your Mac mini. In that case, you need to install the "Y" adapter cable between the power button and the motherboard. However under normal circumstances, it is IMHO better to control sleep and wake-up using software only.

    You also might not. It just depends on what you want to do with it.

    You already asked this question and people already gave you answers.

    Just because people tell you to search a little, doesnt mean you should start a new thread.

    To give you a hint, the answer is in this post: any web site for shoing fx35 mac mini?
