Is there an app that allows this is to be done, so the screen doesn't have to be open when you're streaming an online movie to the apple tv/tv set up. I use insomniacx for audio so the lid is closed when listening. Whats the one for movies -- if such an animal exists.

I think Caffeine prevents the laptop from sleeping, but I don't think you want it doing any sort of processing without the lid being open since the hinge is the venting mechanism.

Agree with @shenan1982 but don't understand why you have posted this here? You don't own or want to own an rMB, you have an MBA.

Also this is a general software question...
