    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | LED Cinema Display | iPhone 4 | iPad 2
    That's generally not a good idea to do since it will retain more heat which is very bad for the Macbook Pro.

    Welcome to Mac Forums
    First choice (and the safe option) is Clamshell Mode

    Next up on the list with the risk of damage due to overheating, esp if you forget that you have it awake while closed when in a case is insomniax
