    It it possible to close the display of an ibook without having it going to sleep, turning off the internet(AIM). Is there a pref. setting that im not looking hard enough for or is there a program or something?

    It may be possible, but I suggest not doing that unless you want a iBook/fireplace combo :p

    It is possible.. but it will melt your screen so I won't tell you and it probably voids warentee

    Apple don't allow it because it will end up damaging something like the screen or it will overheat

    I'll tell you...
    There is an app called "KisMac" and it is used for wardriving. Download that, and in the preferences there is an option called "Keep computer awake when running KisMac." Read the warnings though...

    If left on with the lid closed you might return to your ibook to find
    1) a warped lid
    or
    2) a squishy case
    or
    3) a runny heap of goo...

    apple make the ibook turn off with the lid closed for a reason...

    There is a program called "screen spanning doctor" used to be available at versiontracker.com but can be found here http://www.rutemoeller.com/mp/ibook/ibook_e.html it allows you to do true dual display as well as not sleep when shut, it does say that it will cause a heat build up, but if you want to do it, it is your machine.

    you mean it WAS your machine... now it's your lump of poo!

    F***ing flies, i'm typing this outside my university and the flies seem to love the ibook white colour....

    Or maybe it's just me?
