Why isn't my macbook pro (latest model) sleeping when I close it?

Asked by kfingerman (992points) October 29th, 2009

I fold it down and put it away. When I look into my bag a while later, the little apple logo is still glowing on the front (or it’s run out of juice and died). What’s going on? I’ve looked to those energy settings I could find in the preferences menu and found nothing.

Can you sleep it manually via the apple menu?

Try calibrating the battery
or
resetting the PRAM

What is is saying if you run the command on the next line in the Terminal?

pmset -g

I don’t have a technical answer, but my MacBook sometimes does the same thing. So I have just begun the habit of putting it to sleep before I close the lid. It goes to sleep just fine with the lid up, it is when I close it without putting it to sleep first.

Mine also will not wake up if I don’t manually put it to sleep before closing the lid. Often I will have to do a cold start up to get it going even though it is not really asleep. Meaning I have a blank very dark screen (as opposed to the black sleep screen) with the cursor on it.
