when i close my macbook, it seems like it turn the computer into sleep mode.
is there a setting in the system's preference where i can control what the macbook does when i close the case? I want to be able to close the case and have my ichat still logged in or have my itunes still playing.

That cannot be done. Closing the lid forces it into sleep mode and there is no way you can change that setting..the Apple way. I believe there is a program or two out there for this, but I wouldn't suggest it. What I do is put my screen settings to blacking the screen out. If your screen blacks out after let's say 5 miutes of inactivity, it will lengthen your screen's life/ save battery. It works out rather well.
