    Hey guys

    Sorry if this is obvious, i tried searching but didnt really find much.

    Is there anyway to stop the macbook from going to sleep when connected to an external display and you close it, when theres no mouse/keyboard attached.

    I wanted to watch a few films on a bigger screen, but had 2 leave the macbook open cos when i closed it, the whole thing went to sleep.

    Please help!

    If you have the remote, after you close the lid, just press play or menu on the remote, that will wake up the system, but only output to the external display.
