    Specs:
    iBook G4; 1.07 GHz; 512 MB; Radeon 9200; 40 GB HDD
    Close the lid, but not sleep?
    Is there any way of doing this?

    I.E. I want to listen to my jams but not leave my laptop open.

    I think I worded everything correctly lol

    I don't believe so. The closest thing you can get to that is dimming your monitor to the lowest setting, which is a black screen..

    Yes, it applies to all MacBooks.

    That is because iBooks don't natively support clamshell mode.
