    Well, not really, but it goes into sleep mode when I close the lid. I don't like it! I know apple has a way to do it with bluetooth mice, but I just want to close the lid, and have it continue compressing video/rendering/just doing whatever I have told it to do!

    Any fix for this? Terminal commands? I want to tell it to go to sleep when I want it to sleep, not when IT wants to sleep ;)

    Thanks for spending the time reading this

    You might want to try SleepLess.

    Here's another thread from today on this if you want to see some discussion.

    Your macbook will generate much more heat if you run it closed. Be careful if you choose to do so.

    ;) thanks, I run it in a room that's probably 15 celcius, so it stays pretty cool.
