    it's just the way it's designed to operate. Guess you'd need to ask Apple why they've done it like that

    it should sleep in clamshell mode with or without a power cord plugged in

    the only thing that stops it sleeping in clamshell is if you have an external mouse, keyboard and monitor plugged in
