Hooking the MacBook Pro up to the TV should work as long as the computer still boots up when turned on. As for closing the lid, it depends on if you have it set to go to sleep when the lid is closed, etc. Also, closing the lid on a laptop hooked up to a television wouldn't do you any good unless you had an external keyboard and mouse.

Give it a shot and hook it up. It should work.
