    The key things will probably damage your screen if you leave them in permanently. Simply leaving the paper/foam Apple initially put between the screen and the keys should suffice in keeping everything cool. :)

    Yeah. The iSkin isn't so bad, but some of the alternative brands are.

    So I should still leave the paper/foam sheet inbetween the iSkin and screen?

    I'm not that finicky with my iBook but I wouldn't have either the iSkin or the paper in between the keyboard and the screen, so as to avoid compression and indentation, plus heat dissipation if working in clamshell mode. I guess for you, it'd be best to either just have the iSkin or even to take it off each time you close the laptop. This may not be practical though. :)
