I got a MacBook Pro from a coworker to make sure that a project works on Mac OS X and would like to not have the lid open all the time to protect it and to save space on my desk. Is there some way to get the machine to not sleep when the lid is closed *without* peripherals?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
