    Is there a way to not make my iBook sleep when I close the lid? I want it to keep running at full speed while the lid is closed.

    I think Screen Spanning Doctor lets you run in clamshell mode but it's not recommended. A lot of the heat generated by the iBook's internals are dissipated through the keyboard. Running the thing with the screen closed increases the chances of overheating.

    In fact, don't do it. :)

    No problems. If you do chose to use it, don't do anything too intensive. :)
