Pretty much what i said in the title. I have an external display coming soon that I want to hook up to my macbook, and I want to run it with the lid closed, but I don't have a USB keyboard and mouse. I do however have a wireless mighty mouse and apple wireless keyboard. Is there any way I can still run the Macbook with the lid closed? thanks!

Yep, just make sure the 'let bluetooth devices wake computer' option under system pref-> bluetooth is checked, lug in the monitor, close the 'book and wait for it to sleep, then wake it by clicking the mouse or tapping the keyboard.

P.S. In future try to search, it's been covered before.
