Macbook Flapdown (Lid) settings

You can use the command line utility pmset to change the behavior of the lid closed/open state.

To disable wake/sleep on lid state:

sudo pmset -a lidwake 0
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

To undo the last setting

sudo pmset -a lidwake 1
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

By default, closing the lid will put the Mac to sleep. Setting the lidwake 0 value will disable it meaning closing the lid will do nothing.
