    Hey ive been tryign to get my mac to continue playing music while the lid is closed and am not having much luck. I have pretty much discovered that it is impossible to do from the OS its self. I have also downloaded insomniax but everytime i enable it my system crashes and i gotta restart. So is anyone aware of a solid program i can use that will do waht im trying to? thanks

    I don't know of a program= but can you just leave it open, have the screen go to sleep, but keep the computer running which is the same thing as closing it but keeping the music running.

    I would recommend removing insomniax as soon as possible as many users have reported it screwing their systems up..

    If you have a video adapter, you can plug it in, close the lid, wake the mac with remote or usb mouse and continue playing your music

    I don't think that there is another program other than insomiax. Couldn't you just plug your i-pod into the speakers?
