    1. I'm working on a Dutch computer so the dictionary is in dutch. I visit allot af english forum's and like to write in english but the dictionary keeps telling me everything i write is wrong. is there an easy way to change the language to english for the dictionary when I'm writing in english?
    2. I used to be a windows user so I'm used to be able to type numbers with my shift/caps lock key, now on mac the caps lock key only works for capitalized letters and it wont work for numbers (as shift lock would do) is there any way to change the caps lock to a shift lock?
    3. I'm thinking of using the program InsomniaX (prevents laptop to go in standby when lid is closed) in school but I'm worried that it could be bad for my mbp. I've heard that with the cinemadisplay and a external keyboard and mouse you can also close the lid and use the cinema display as youre computer. (laptop still running ofcourse) Does this mean it's not so bad to let youre mbp run when its closed?

    thank you in advance for the answers,
