    Hi everyone, I have a 2012 Macbook Air and the Apple logo on lid flickers when put to sleep. Any ideas why it's doing this? I already have reset PRAM and SMC and it still does it. :(

    The lid is literally powered by the backlight of the display in your MBA, so if it is flickering, that would indicate that the entire panel is flickering for some reason when you are putting the computer to sleep. Can't say I've had the same issue with my MBA but I'll keep an eye out for it.
