Last night I plugged in my Macbook Pro 13" and put it in my bag on sleep and let it charge all night. I've done this before, but when I pulled it out today it was unbelievably hot all over. The lid, bottom, palm rest, keys, everything. Hotter than it's ever been. What happened? It's never happened in all the times I've charged it in my bag on sleep.

Personally, I would never recommend charging anything while it is in a bag. It does have a shutdown mechanism if it is running and it gets too hot. Not sure about it activating when it is sleeping...
