[PLUG] Run macbook pro with lid down

This is a repost of mine from the PANMA list, relating to a Mac laptop. I have a hunch that the solution lies in the Unix llayer so at the risk of an off-topic post I'll let it rip:

I want to use my macbook pro as a software synth with a midi controller, but I'd love to be able to run it with the lid shut, out of a suitcase or something (with ample breathing room... maybe vented!). I think that having a laptop glaring at people during performances would kind of wreck the mood. Anybody know how to disable the kill switch so I can leave the machine running after I shut it? Perhaps disable some I/O from the command line? 

Thanks in advance
