    Is this possible? I got Caffeine thru the app store but, unless I am doing it wrong, it doesnt keep the machine alive when the lid is closed..

    Help?

    Caffeine won't keep your Mac awake with the lid closed. To do that, either use clamshell mode, or use InsomniaX or InsomniaT (rebuild for SL) (fix for 2011 MPBs)

    if I don't have an external kb or mouse will imsonia still work? I basically want to shut the lid and let it sit, yet ATV can still pluck movies...

    Yes, but you won't be able to interact with it without opening the lid or using a remote desktop solution.
