    Firstly, sorry for all the threads asking for help...but

    I am trying to use my Macbook Pro (C2D 2.16GHz) with a 23" ACD and everytime I shut the lid of the MBP, it goes to sleep. Is there a way around this?

    You have to plug in an external mouse and keyboard or use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Make sure that the charger is also on and connected.

    Ok, that'd make sense :d I'll give it a go and post when I've tried in a few mins. Thanks

    EDIT: Great that worked! Thanks! I can't believe I didn't think of that :)
