A macbook has a clamshell mode by default. I am using mine with a 23" Cinema display right now.

You can wake it with a usb or bluetooth device. My usb keyboard wakes mine.

When you close the macbook it will want to go to sleep. Just keep moving the usb mouse or tappping the space bar (external keyboard) and it will wake back up. It may take 10 seconds or so.

Docking your iPhone should wake it up also.
