i am a heavy downloader ... i want to close the lid while my it downloading ...munkle said:If your iBook is put to sleep you won't be able to stay connected to the internet.
Why would you want to be connected when your computer is asleep?
munkle said:i don't know if it applies to iBooks but I can use my PB in clamshell mode (lid closed) by attaching an external keyboard/monitor.
Sometimes the simples solutions are the best...gizmo_pony said:thanks for all answers ... maybe i should just open up the lcd and turn down the brightness ...
If clamshelling isn't a word, it dang well should be!mad jew said:The PowerBooks were designed with clamshelling in mind (is that even a word ) whereas the iBooks were not. The PowerBooks have different heat dissipation techniques/routes so it's much less of a problem. I would never use clamshell mode on my iBook.
