Hi,

Just got my first mac yesterday. I'm using the macbook with my 22" external monitor. I would like to keep the macbook closed while I work on external keyboard and monitor. What do I have to do to make this happen. Everytime I close the lid of the macbook, the monitor shuts down. Thanks

Hit a key on the external keyboard (e.g. spacebar) and it will wake it up and put it in clamshell mode.

Im not sure maybe, this app will do it it means you can close the lid with out the computer sleeping (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/22211)
