    Question Macbook closed and working
    Hi!

    I'm looking for a program that makes the macbook do some simple thing that we can do on any windows notebook: close the note and it keep running normal. I use a 24" external screen on my mac and an external mouse/keybd, so i want to keep it close, but still awake.

    ANy clues?

    Why? Why don't you do what I do and use the MacBook as a second monitor when it's plugged in to the external?
