    Is there anything that I can install that will stop my MacBook from going to sleep when the lid is closed? I have tried Insomniax but it leaves the screen on, and I'd rather have it turned off. The only way I know of doing this is closing the MacBook and then using my RowMote Pro app on my iPhone to sleep the display. Insomniax has a "Sleep Display" option but it doesn't work on Snow Leopard.

    All I want to do is close my MacBook lid and disable sleep mode, and turn the display off.

    Never mind, I just found out you can disable the display using screen corners. Problem solved I guess...:D

    In Terminal:

    pmset lidwake 0
    You might have to put a "sudo" in front of that.
