    I don't think you've done anything wrong.

    Restart the computer :) That'll definitely sort it out..although personally i think it probably is sleeping. Just taking a touch longer to go into sleep. Also try repairing your permissions.

    If the white light is pulsing, it means your Mac is sleeping. When you first close the lid, it saves information to disk and prepares to sleep, so give it a minute or two before it starts pulsing.

    How long from the time you may have saved something or closed an app before you closed the lid?

    It may have got hung up saving stuff when it was told to sleep.

    It happens to my 2007 MBP sometimes. All I do is tap the power button several times until it wakes up while it's in that state. But be careful not to to hold it down too long or it will hard restart.
