    Hi Guys
    I'm very new to Macs (4 days) and hope to get involved in video editing on a professional basis. I have matched my 13" macbook pro to a 23 inch widescreen monitor and wanted to inquire as the best way to keep the macbook pro ON, but also save on space.
    I have heard of 'Insomnia' which disables the sleep function on the mac and wanted to check if, by dimming my screen down to off (the minimum brightness the screen will go) and turning on 'insomnia' will that be enough to prevent the screen/unit from overheating?
    thanks in advance
    Jack
