    Hi,
    I'm not sure if this question has been asked before.

    How can I stop my MBP from sleeping and stopping Itunes and my torrent downloads when I close the lid?

    This is my first Mac so please excuse my ignorance.

    Thanks

    there is no way of keeping airport or internet alive when you close the lid, but with the lid closed you can wake up your mac if you plug a usb mouse for example.

    Insomniax did the trick alright and that makes me very :D!
    I can now stream music and download files with the lid closed and just have the display sleep.


    Thanks guys.
