    Is there a way to set up my MacBook so I can shut the lid when I have it connected to my Dell 20" monitor? I do have the wireless BlueTooth mouce and keyboard for the MacBook and the Mini-DVI to VGA connector.

    to run in clamshell, you have to have the monitor, keyboard/mouse or remote, and the power. mb must be plugged in. hook it all up, and then wake it. should work.
