playing music when the laptop is closed

by oneCNETuser / February 9, 2008 3:34 PM PST

I have Mac OS X 10.4 Intel Core 2 Duo
Please someone answer me!!! I made a post under the Mac OS forum section but no one is answering. My question is if it's possible, to have music to continue playing even when my MacBook Pro laptop is closed. I'm not very computer literate. Please help!!! So I just want to be able to continue to listen to play music through iTunes with an earphone plugged in while the laptop is closed down.

Maybe. . .

In a PC there is a setting in Power Options to set the laptop to do nothing when the lid is closed. Maybe something in the MAC?

MacBook's rquire Hack for staying on while lid closed

Hi, MacBooks are meant to go into suspend always when the lid is closed, the only thing you can do is get a hack to disable the system default setup. This has always been an annoying thing about the MacBooks in general. I have a both a Windows Laptop and a Mac notebook so I know the differences. You can get a hack called InsomniaX from here:
