    Hey there

    I want to know if there is some way that I can close the lid of my macbook and have it not go to sleep. I have the mac book hooked up to a external monitor and would like to be able to close the macbook so its not always open. If there is an option i have to click or something please let me know but i have looked and havent found anything. My friend has a MBP hooked up to an external monitor and he closes the lid and hits his usb keyboard and the computer comes back on on the external monitor. I try to do the same thing with my bluetooth keyboard and it still stays asleep.
