    Hey all,

    So I've recently connected my MacBook to an external display (a TV actually). Obviously, when I close the MacBook's screen the computer goes to sleep. How do I stop this from happening?

    I checked in 'help' -- it said that if I connected the monitor to the computer AFTER closing the display, the computer would continue to run with the display closed. I've already connected it all though (running cables through cabinets, etc.) and I don't really want to undo all of that! Is there an easier way to set the computer to stay on (as opposed to entering sleep mode) when the display is closed?

    Thanks in advance.
