    I am trying to use a new 24 inch widescreen monitor with my intel MBP. I have a DVI to HDMI cable. What i want to do is use my laptop normally, go over to the monitor, plug it in, close the lid, and resume using my laptop as a desktop basically. how do I get it to not fall asleep when I close the lid?

    Also, the only way I can seem to use a nice clear display setting for the monitor is when i don't have mirrored monitors on. So... help please!

    Thanks a lot!
