    Hi,

    Got a 2012, Macbook Air running on Mountain Lion, just wondering if I can keep my download running (UTorrent) whilst the lid is closed, however still with the charging cable attached?


    Thanks

    utorrent -> preferences -> prevent sleep when transfers are active

    or download nosleep

    To keep your Mac notebook awake with the lid closed, use InsomniaX or InsomniaT (rebuild for SL) (fix for 2011 MPBs)

    NoSleep also keeps your Mac notebook awake when you close the lid.
