    The latch to keep my MBP closed is broken. It stays closed, but can easily open up again. For instance, if I put my MBP to sleep manually (apple icon>sleep) it goes to sleep. I close the lid, then carry it with me to school. But the latch isn't secure the latch disengages, which automatically wakes up the MBP. Is their anyway I can disable the auto wake up when the lid is open function?

    no you cant. but you could take the battery out after you have put your MBP to sleep and it will go into safe sleep (hibernation). then put the battery back in and press the power button and it will resume to your desktop.

    Not sure, if this is a good idea...

    Anyway, the sleep function can definitely be disabled with 3rd party software. Maybe you could also disable the auto-wakeup in a similar fashion. In any case, you would need 3rd party software which I don't have any experience with (but as said, some exists even if I don't remember its' name)
