with the lid of the 2012 macbook air closed? Ca it be done. Is there an app that will allow it?
To keep your MBP awake with the lid closed, use InsomniaX or InsomniaT (rebuild for SL) (fix for 2011 MPBs)
NoSleep keeps your Mac notebook awake when you close the lid.
... and I believe it must be plugged in...
No, it doesn't need to be plugged in.
so it can't be operated on battery?
Yes, it can be operated on battery with the lid closed. It does not need to be plugged in.
i've downloaded insomniax. it works perfectly. many thanks! it's odd that OSX doesn't any such ability built in????
I agree that it would be nice if OS X had an option in System Preferences to determine the behavior when the lid is closed, but if OS X did everything, I guess there would be no need for 3rd party apps.
I listen to internet radio on the internet.
