    I just got my Macbook Pro. I use my computer as a Alarm clock and wanted to know if I close the lid, is there a way the alarm can sound?

    Thanks

    Don't close your lid.

    Just sleep your display by pressing

    Control + Shift + Eject.

    Is there a difference which way I put it to sleep? I mean is closing the lid better (saves more energy?)?

    Putting the display to sleep doesn't put the hardware to sleep. So, to answer your question, yes.
