Either pmset noidle doesn't work, or "sleep" doesn't mean what I think it means. If I'm playing Pandora and I shut my lid, I want the music to keep playing. Apparently there's an app called InsomniaX but I can't find a reputable version that is advertised as working with Lion.

I do not think that there is a way without any third party applications. InsomniaX 2.0 that will allow you to control the lid behavior.

InsomniaX disables the sleep mode on a Apple Laptop allowing you to play music through speakers while it's closed. Also adds the option to enable hibernation mode. We are currently looking for a new icon set for InsomniaX, if anyone can produce a new "lickable" set please contact the help desk
