    In sleepmode does the MBP give off enough heat so that when its inside a sleeve it should be shutdown to prevent ridiculously high temperatures?

    No, it will be fine sleeping in the sleeve. Over a long period of time however, I'd turn it off. There's always a chance it could accidentally wake up and then totally fry. I had a PC laptop that did that. It was sleeping and somehow it turned on in my bag and boom, hard drive failed.

    EDIT: That being said, let it cool down for a minute or two before going in the sleeve.

    I keep mine in a sleeve while it sleeps (for half-a-day at the most though). I've had no problems at all so far - it sleeps very cool.
