    Power LED pulse on Sleep

    Sleeping MacBook Pro in Sleeve

    Is it okay to keep my sleeping MacBook Pro (16-inch M2 Max) inside a carrying sleeve? Will my MacBook Pro overheat? Does my MacBook Pro need to breathe when it is sleeping with the lid closed? I guess it would be safer to shut it down first, but that’s a bit inconvenient.
