    ok, i hardly ever turn it off, i usually just put it to sleep (just close it) when i need to.

    today, for the second time (not second time today) after i close it, put it in my bag, go to the next class, i get there, open it up, and it has restarted......

    not sure what's causing it though. any ideas? should i be worried about this?

    You should turn it off before you put it in your bag. It may overheat and it'll be costly to fix.

    Also, you should have "Allow Blowtooth devices to wake this computer" check off if you are gonna put it in your bag in sleep.

    I'd say it's under warranty so do whatever. Mine does that sometimes as well and I get quite annoyed to get somewhere and have a dead battery. It's not your fault. It's supposed to sleep when you close it. If it overheats then, call Apple.

    I've heard about this happening on a Macbook (one account on MR) but it wasn't that it had restarted but that it had awoken. Do you think it could be the latch?

    I love the "instant" startup when putting the MB/P to sleep but I'm afraid I'll have to agree with #2 and shut down your MBP unless someone has a solution to this...

    This isn't true. If the computer goes to sleep like it should when it is closed, it doesn't create any heat. The only thing receiving power is the ram, which is kept alive for when you awake from sleep. Turning your computer off before putting it away is a time consuming ritual that has become obsolete in recent years since computers can just sleep instead. Going to sleep and waking from sleep takes a mere second or two, takes extremely little power, and is perfectly safe.

    If you open your MBP after putting it to sleep and it restarts, THAT sounds like a problem with your computer. You might want to make sure your lappy is sleeping properly before you put it in your bag.

    It might help to open up console and see what the main system log reports in between you putting it to sleep and you opening it again and finding it has restarted. Agreed with (most) of the others -- (1) putting it to sleep when transporting it is absolutely fine. I've been doing this for three years with my iBook. (2) it is feasible that bluetooth is the culprit.

    thanks for all the replies

    well when i opened it, it has already restarted. it didnt restart when i opened it. and it doesn't always do this, it just happened to do it today.

    how can i check to make sure it's sleeping properly?

    Is the light by the latch glowing lighter and darker? Kind of "snoozing?" If it isn't that's a good sign things aren't working propoerly.

    i think when u closed the macbook, you didnt give it enough time to go to sleep before putting it in your bag. what happens is, the hard drive is turned off when the macbook senses motion, so the macbook must have gone in some state that caused a restart or didnt sleep. this happens sometimes if for example you tell the macbook to shut down and while it is shutting down you close the lid, again an indeterminate state and could cause battery drain and/or unexplained restarts.

    I'm talking about when it "accidentally" turns on for whatever reasons, keyboard got hit or bluetooth turned it on. ;) I've had this happened to my MBP. I rather be safe than to have my computer overheat and possibly losing all of my stuff.

    i guess this is possible, but i'd like to think it had enough time. i'll watch it more carefully next time. (in about 50 minutes)

    Did you upgrade the memory in this machine? I've seen people have issues when moving their laptops due to poorly seated memory that gets dislodged when moving. I myself had this problem with my Powerbook and it was causing the same issues you're reporting. Worth a look.

    i didn't upgrade the memory in this machine myself. i upgraded through apple this time.

    i've had this thing since around christmas, and it's only done it twice, and both times recently. you still think it could be from the ram?

    Copy and paste the part from when it goes to sleep until it reboots, if you can, and we'll look at it.

    Perfect, I think I can answer your question. It has to do with this line:

    Right after that line, the system basically starts rebooting. This is a pretty likely indicator that you have bad RAM... see this thread:

    I'm no expert on reading this junk, but there was mention of bluetooth in the console. That might be your culprit.

    As heehee mentioned before, check to make sure that "Allow bluetooth devices to wake this computer" is disabled.
