only had my macbook for a few days and today I shut it down before class. about and into class I reached into my bag and felt the macbook's heat. I took it out and the sleep light was on.when I opened the lid the light would turn off but the macbook itself was off.yeah so it was hot and the sleep light was on after I shut it off...what does that mean?

Hey mate. This has come up before and mine did it once too. You need to wait a few seconds after the screen goes black before closing the lid otherwise it seems to just go into some sort of wierd sleep state. Since I found this out and spent a couple of seconds waiting, it has never done it again.
