    Closed and running?
    new to this site and Mac world.

    I'm still in the research phase.

    Pardon the ignorance ~ but, can you turn on the PB with it closed and use an external monitor?

    thanks much!

    From what I understand if you close the pb and attach your monitor then attach a USB keyboard and mouse it should wake up.

    Apple says to plug everything in while the computer is on, then shut the lid, then press a button on the mouse to wake it back up.

    Specs:
    2.0 GHz Macbook Pro, 1.5 GB RAM.....1.83 GHz Macbook 1 GB RAM
    there is a program called "insomniaX" (freeware), that will allow the MPB to run with the lid closed.....I love it.
