I put my MacBook Pro into my bag and it overheats as the machine never goes to sleep.

Check your system preferences – can’t remember which exactly right now – and ensure that you’ve got it config’d to go to sleep when you close the screen.

Could you try running “pmset -g” in the Terminal. (without quotes) It should look similar to what is below. I would like to see what yours outputs.

Helpful, you say. Tylenol Simply Sleep puts me to sleep QUICK.

Really, my OSX desktop was acting like that early on. During one of the Genius Bar tech visits, he made a small adjustment and all is fine now. Don’t know what he did.
