    Hi all,

    My plan is to run my MBP in clamshell mode (lid completly closed) attached to an external keyboard/mouse and cinema display. This computer will be run in Windows XP as the default bootcamp startup.

    I was wondering if this was possible at all, or do I have to open the computer, hit the power button, then close the lid every time i want to use the computer?

    Thanks on any input in unique ways to get a setup like this

    Thanks!

    There is an app called Insomnia which will do that.

    Thanks but this seems to just keep the computer on hibernation forever. Not a good thing with windows XP :) :)
