    Yes. Just keep an eye on it, despite common repetitions, Blackbooks use their keyboard area for an air intake. While it can run just fine closed, it has a higher chance of overheating. If you notice it overheating or starting to produce graphic artifices on the screen, open it up to allow more airflow.

    Yes you will be able to run it, but like Intell said, just be sure that you monitor the temps. If you aren't doing anything too tasking, you should be fine.

    Just shut the lid. If it goes off, make sure there's a external screen, mouse, and keyboard connected and wake it back up with the keyboard or mouse.
