Your MacBook probably woke up while in the brief case. Not a good idea to put the machine to sleep and carry it around in an enclosed area like a brief case or back pack. Very easy for the machine to wake up and overheat. Also, the hard drive will spin up when the machine wakes. That could cause damage to the HD.

Shut the machine down before placing it in your brief case. It doesn't take but a minute to boot it up.

Regards.
