Although I don't disagree with chscag, I'm not quite as concerned about the machine waking unexpectedly.

In sleep mode, the Mac can wake in a couple of different ways, in my experience it usually happens when there's a Bluetooth device in its proximity (like a mouse or keyboard). You can disable Bluetooth devices from waking the machine in System Preferences. Also, if the lid is jarred open, that can cause a wake state, but is not as likely if it's a decent bag. The only other way I can think it would happen is if an external monitor is connected, but that just wouldn't happen in a notebook bag

Early on, I had this happen to me as I usually leave the machine asleep in my bag rather than do a cold boot. But once I disabled Bluetooth wake, it's been fine ever since.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
