    Hey all,

    I just bought a sleeve for my MacBook (Belkin MacBook Air sleeves fit just fine) and I was wondering if its safe to leave my MacBook on sleep mode while it's in the sleeve, and while I'm making my way across university campus. That's all I wanted to know really! Thanks in advanced!

    I never turn my Macbook of, it is aways in sleep mode. It won't even become slightly warm after >12 hours sleep in a sleeve with zero air circulation.

    It should be fine. I've left mine in a sleeve and it hasn't gotten warm or anything.

    Alright, awesome! Thanks guys!

    Also wondering if leaving the MagSafe charger in when the laptop is 100% charge is bad for the battery?

    In general, you should use the battery once in awhile just to keep it working properly.

    No, it's not bad. If your battery power is less than 95% or so, then the MacBook will charge it to 100% and stop charging it. At this moment, your computer is running on AC power and not the battery. The MagSafe charger will also not begin charging the battery again until it is below 95%.

    I love this, because the battery is not constantly discharging and recharging.
