05-02-2006, 02:35 PM #1Installing new applications and avoiding sleep
I haven't posted here yet (I don't think), but I signed up a while ago, knowing I'd be getting a MacBook Pro as soon as I could afford it. I finally got it (and LOVE it), but I just have a few newbie-to-mac questions...
1) How do I install software that is on the DVD, such as Xcode?
2) How do I keep it from going to sleep when I close the lid?
I did check thoroughly through the System Prefs about #2 but couldn't find anything. I do have a few other minor pet peeves, such as not being able to just leave the k/b backlighting on (it shuts off if I turn my light on, but I still can't quite see the keys) but all-in-all I already know I won't be looking back!
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for that! There's no real way to know these things when OS X comes installed for you...

To be honest, I wouldn't recomend it...The MacBook Pro get's pretty hot, hotter than any PowerBook. Leaving it on with the screen closed wouldn't do it much good...
