Disable clamshell mode

Apple has introduced clamshell mode. So when you're connected to another monitor (e.g. ACD) and close the lid, it just moves all your windows to the external monitor.
I have no keyboard or mouse attached, so why on earth apple thinks i will be using clamshell mode i have no idea. Also it's easy just to induce 'insomnia' and close the lid while staying awake (if i did ever want to do this).

This is really annoying, as i have to click alt+cmd+ eject; and as an apple customer, this is too much effort, and just annoying. Also if i close the screen before it sleeps it just moves all the windows. And if i'm in a rush, an outstretched arm can't put my mac to sleep.

Surely some genius out there can find out the terminal command to disable this feature of lion.

Thank you!
