Open lid?

Quick question MR!

When I study I like to listen to music and I was wondering if since the laptop is open and goes into sleep does it matter that I haven't shut the lid? nothing to worry about? I like to listen to the radio so listening to music from my phone is outta the pic and my phone is broken anyways till the new one comes out lol

Appreciate all the help once again!!

You are forgetting about the issue with the new MacBook Airs. The one where if you don't close the lid while listening to music, it wears down the tilda (~) key until it is no longer functional. After about 2 hours, you will forever lose the tilda key.

After advanced scientific analysis of this statement, I conclude it is meant as a joke.
