    Nope

    Nope, iBooks vent heat from the keyboard, so it would overheat real quick.

    Notice...

    Notice I didn't say it wasn't POSSIBLY, I said the iBook could very possibly overheat if they are run closed, because they were not designed to be run that way.

    Do whatever you like, at your own risk.
