Apple Portables: How to use your computer in closed clamshell (display closed) mode with an external display
If Apple thought it wasn't safe or if they thought it was highly recommended that you didn't do such a thing, then directions on how to do so would never be posted on their site.
In fact, it would be quite the opposite.
If it was dangerous, they would post something strongly advising you against it.
For example, despite popular opinion, Apple does not sell laptops.
They don't call their portable computers laptops.
Despite the fact that most users continue to do so and even use these computers on their laps, Apple does advise users of their portable computers to avoid using their machines on their lap.

installed InsomniaX a few hours ago, ive noticed it seems to ignore the settings under "Energy Savings"..
I told InsomniaX to not sleep when the lid is closed but i still want the screen to turn off after X amount of minutes and the computer to sleep after X amount of minutes
