    What’s with the obsession of turning your Mac into an iPad? Why don’t you just use an iPad then?

      Are you stupid? –– The reason for this is to customize Mac OSX, because there REALLY isn’t any thing in the settings that lets you customise the Theme Looks and Appearances of MacOSX. :/

    I like it, it would be even nicer if we had a dark window theme to go along with this but I am very bored with the grey appearance of OS X :)

    I love the black menu bar that Nocturne gives me. Thanks for the tip. :)

    When I restart my Mac it’s back to standard though :(

    Is there a way to keep my Nocturne setting after restart?

      System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items > “+”

      …and add the Nocturne app to the list.

      Note “Dim when inactive” has a bug whereby if set to only partial dim, then after restart it goes completely dim until the first time the menubar is mouseovered.

      Otherwise, the effect completely blows me away. Now I have to figure out how to dim the Dock….

    Great tip, thank you! There is a little problem with Nocturne though: it does not disappear completely when in full screen mode… what to do here please?

    FYI there is now an app designed specifically for just doing this:

    The dev mentions that it was directly inspired by Nocturn…
