You need a 3rd party program like InsomniaX to do it but you should be warned because you can overheat the machine and damage it

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

At the moment I have an external mouse, monitor and keyboard connected to my MacBook. Closing the screen will put it to sleep, however, hitting a key on the external keyboard will wake it up on the external monitor.

Not sure if this is what you want though.
