    I cannot figure out how to set it so when I close it, it won't go to sleep.

    I can do thise with a pc so hopefully mac has the same option.

    as far as i know, you can't...

    you couldn't with a powerbook or ibook, so i suspect its the same with the macbook and macbook pro.

    I thought closed lid mode was possible with the macbooks. Or is this only when an external monitor and keyborad/mouse are attached?

    I know you can use it as an extra monitor if you want to hook up another monitor to it, but I am pretty sure you can't "clamshell" it
