A couple of bits of sticky velcro, and some black foamcore or similar.
Cut a strip as wide as the required depth of hood and as long as the
width and twice the height of the laptop lid (plus a wee bit over for
the bends).  Then trim the sides so that they slope back and down like a
truncated triangle so you can actually get at the function keys.
Finally "crimp" the foamcore so that it folds cleanly at the corners and
use the sticky velcro to attach it to the lid.
