    Is it possible to use the MBA with the lid closed while running an external monitor? Do I need any other software to load to do that?

    Yeah it works great that way. I use the normal way, no InsomniaX or Caffeine a it runs great, much cooler than my old MacBook.

    Just remember to keep it plugged into power otherwise it will go to sleep.

    normal way here too,.. sometimes pressing a key on the USB keyboard won't get it out of sleep, but opening and closing the lid will do the trick than :)
