    is it possible to put my MBP alu, in clamshell mode without attaching a mouse or a screen?

    the point would be that I could leave certain programs running and be able to close my laptop at the same time; so an app that could do this would be fine too . so when I'm downloading loads at podcasts at once, and wan't to keep it running when closing the lid.

    thanks, Sam

    insomniax will let you run in clamshell mode. However it's not recommended for long periods because the heat could damage your screen. Try it out it works great.
