    The reason for it going to sleep is that it supposedly uses the keyboard to vent heat, and thus it probably isn't a good idea to have it running with the screen against the keyboard. A couple of sites [] seem to agree with this.

    While I haven't tried it with mine, I have read that if you plug the AV dongle in, it doesn't go to sleep when you close the lid. This is so you can watch DVDs on an external TV, but that probably isn't what you want.
    • Alas, it does go to sleep with the AV cable. Just tried. Which is one of the things I wanted it to stay awake for. (The other two being for working when hooked up to all the external bits, and for using it as a whopping great MP3 player plugged into the car stereo :)
