Before SCHERMER, VENTERS and SALADINO, Bankruptcy Judges.

Coleen L. Powers (“Powers”) appeals three orders entered by the bankruptcy court.*fn1 The first two orders, entered on September 12, 2008, closed Mesaba Aviation, Inc.’s (the “Debtor”)*fn2 chapter 11 bankruptcy case (the “Closing Order”) and overruled Powers’ objection to the case closing (the “Overruling Order” and together with the Closing Order, the “Case Closing Orders”). The third order that Powers appeals was entered on May 1, 2009 (the “Final Order”). The Final Order denied Powers’ requests that the bankruptcy court: (1) reconsider the Case Closing Orders; (2) allow Powers to proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”) for this appeal; and (3) seal Powers’ IFP application or reconsider its previous order denying her request for IFP status. We also consider Powers’ requests for appointment of counsel and oral argument in this appeal.We have jurisdiction over this appeal from the final orders of the bankruptcy court. See 28 U.S.C. § 158(b). We also have jurisdiction to consider Powers’ requests for appointment of counsel and oral argument. For the reasons set forth below, we affirm the decisions of the bankruptcy court and we deny Powers’ request for appointment of counsel and for oral argument.
