    I want to be able to keep my PowerBook from sleeping when I close it, similar to the Insomniac app for jailbreak.

    I want to be able to keep my laptop in my briefcase during school so that I can run a proxy server on it, or just accessing with my iTouch in general.

    Is there an application I can download or a Terminal code I can run to achieve this affect?

    Help is much appreciated, of course.

    But remember to read the warnings! XD, I only use it because I have a seperate USB keyboard from my piano so I can record music into my computer but sometimes I don't want the screen open, lol. Good for *******s! And you can still lower the brightness level to its minimum so the apple logo doesn't light up if u want. Though there are a hell of a lot of warnings that come wiht it... I'm not even touching hybernation mode!
