    Hi all!

    I was wondering how I could access my MacBook Pro's drive and resources with the lid closed. I saw that I could do that with my MacBook Air; while it was closed and in my backpack I still saw it on the left side of the Finder window and could access everything.

    Is this a Back to My Mac thing? I have it running on both via iCloud. If not, how can I get my MacBook Pro to make its resources available with the lid closed like my MacBook Air does.

    Thanks!

    What are you using to access your closed MBA?

    I just accessed it through the Finder on the left side.

    I do realize it's easier to Google something. I did so, and didn't find anything to answer my question. A forum is my last resort. As you can see from my join date, post date, and number of posts I don't do this often.

    Instead of wasting time with variants of "Google it, n00b" posts, be productive and actually give me something I can use.
