    My MBP arrived today and I want to make use of my £65 voucher and buy log me in for iPad.

    IF my MBP is at home plugged in on charge and the lid is CLOSED but I'm out with my iPad, could I still log in? Obviously the screen will be shut so people won't see me working on it.

    Not if your Mac is asleep. However, you can keep your Mac awake with the lid closed by using InsomniaX or InsomniaT (rebuild for SL) (fix for 2011 MPBs)

    No, Caffeine won't keep your Mac awake with the lid closed.

    It's really not a problem using InsomniaX or InsomniaT.

    But with all the SL issues I'm guessing it won't work great for lion :(
