    It can happen, especially if you close the lid before the shut down process has finished.

    Unplug, pull out the battery, take it in to Apple/call Apple. Do NOT attempt to use it. Keep it somewhere fire-proof in the meantime (the battery).

    i been using it lately hey and it not been bad at all, only thing is that i think there is something faulty with my sensor lid( think thats what it is) when its put to sleep or shutdown. I also have problem sometimes when turning it on, it doesnt respond. I had this problem in my last ibook also. Apple getting lazy...

    if you close the lid before the shut down process finished, shouldn't it go into sleep if it still can, but if it has gone too far it'll just shut down, right?

    but what was THAT....

    oh.. do you have external keyboard/mouse, after you closed the lid, perhaps you moved the mouse, in which case it fired your mb back up... i dont know

    Nah nothing other than lappie, so no external devices... i dont know what the deal with this new mac book. There is a couple problems now i had, but i think that i give it a bit cause i still have one year warranty.

    I think there is something wrong with this battery also , cause it never gives true reading, it dies really quickly when on 5 percent or so. The macbook had battery issues hadnt it> some got recalled?

    I get that quite frequently (doesn't shut down, turns into a furnace on blue screen). It was one of the list of issues I listed which wasn't cured by the MBP's first visit into Applecare. Maybe they only fix one issue at the time, then leave it sitting in their vaults for a week. I wait around for the MBP to shut down these days or make sure it enters sleep mode.

    The overall sleep / hibernation / etc modes and functionality on Mac laptops seem to be severely buggy / lacking compared to Windows machines.

    If it has logged out of the Operating System and you close the lid, it will heat up like no other...

    Tried this with my girlfriends MacBook. We had to hold down the Power Button to turn it off properly.
