Setting Up Your MacBook with the Lid Closed
You can close the lid of your MacBook and use just your Apple LED Cinema Display.
Follow the setup instructions on the previous page and make sure the MagSafe
connector from the display is plugged into the MagSafe power port on your MacBook.
To use your Apple LED Cinema Display with your MacBook lid closed:
1 Connect an external USB keyboard and mouse to a USB port on your display, or use the
Bluetooth® Setup Assistant to set up a wireless keyboard and mouse.
2 Make sure your MacBook is turned on.
3 Close the lid on your MacBook to put it to sleep.
4 Wait a few seconds, and then press any key on the external keyboard or click the
mouse to wake your MacBook.
