Use laptop Macs in lid closed mode for quieter operation
Authored by: Twist on Sep 26, '07 09:02:58PM

There has long been software for enabling this kind of setup (there were ways to do it back in the pre-OS X days, and I think KisMAC can enable closed lid operation without any external devices connected) though I have heard people say that it hasn't always been a good idea to use your laptop in this fashion because they are designed to dissipate heat through the keyboard. I don't know how accurate this is but I do know that my G4 iBook does seem to radiate more heat through the keyboard when under a heavy workload.
