    Hello,
    I am wondering if my MBA is connected with external VGA monitor and BT usb keyboard and mouse, can it work in closed mode or must be open ?
    10x in advance

    It can run in clamshell mode aslong as you have a display and external mouse/trackpad connected. You can always download InsomniaX to force the laptop to not sleep when closed.

    It also needs to be connected to AC in order to work.

    I did not know this! (So I disconnected the AC from my ACD to test it... unsurprisingly you were right haha)
