Sleep mode uses very little power; just enough to keep things alive in memory and bring the machine back to life (wake up).

As for your MacBook, you're more than likely using hibernate sleep mode which can take up to 30 - 45 seconds to activate. Try downloading and installing the free "SmartSleep" utility and adjust the sleep function for a quicker sleep.
