This is very aggravating. I hope there's someone out there who'll be able to help.

I've been having a lot of sleep wake issues with my new macbook. Sometimes I get a black backlit blank screen and have to close and reopen a few times to get it to wake properly. Other times I have to restart it all together. When an external mose/keyboard/monitor is plugged in and I want to shut the lid it goes to sleep automatically (no known way to prevent this). Waking it back up with the external keyboard or mouse takes over 30 seconds to register!

Instead of having to deal with having to wake it up like this - is there a way to prevent it from sleeping automatically when the lid is closed? I know the keyboard can wake it after a lengthy, frustrating pause - but there has to be a way to stop the automatic sleep feature when the lid is being closed.
