    Well, i ran into quite a problem. My macbook keyboard needs to be replaced, so i figured i'd use my dell for now. Well, my dell hard drive died after about 10 years of use lol, so now i have a desktop with no hard drive, and a macbook with no keyboard lol. I hooked up my macbook to my monitor, got my keyboard and mouse hooked up, and speakers too. It's pretty cool, no difference from a desktop. My only question now is I'm wondering if there is any way that I can keep my macbook running with it closed. I want to do this if its possible so i can just use it like a desktop for now, and keep it closed so the monitor for it isnt on 24/7, and so i can fit it on top of my computer tower. I think I'm going to get a cooler to sit it on since i'm going to use it like this too. But is there anyway to shut it and use it? any settings that can be changed? thanks!

    This has been asked lots of times. I know you're new here, but please try to remember to search.
