There isn't any such option.

You would have to ignore the lid-open signal in the kernel, or send the
machine right back to sleep from pmud. On the first method, BenH might
know how to tell the PMU to not wake on lid open. The second should be
easier to implement but it's a hack only. I'll look into that.

Low tech fix: just wrap a rubber band around the iBook :-)
