    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.

    No, it doesn't need to be plugged 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.
