My Macbook used to go in 'sleep' mode once I close the lid, but now I have to manually put it to sleep using Apple->Sleep. Is there anyway to switch back? I sometimes forget to put it to sleep which ends up draining my battery.

Thanks for your help,
QUOTE Thanks

Power it off

remove power plug and battery

open lid and hold the power button in for at least 10 seconds

put battery back in and plug in power
