    I use my Macbook to connect through VPN & Remote Desktop Client to a windows machine at my work. Unfortunately, if I close the macbook to move to another room, etc. the VPN connection gets dropped & I have to go through the whole login process again.

    There's a utility called InsomniaX that disables sleep on lid close. It seems to work fine. Do any of you have experience with this or suggestions/warnings? I notice that the display doesn't seem to get shut off, but one can do that manually. Since MacBooks can run with the lid closed with an external display this doesn't seem intrinsically dangerous, but I wonder.

    Thoughts?
