Exactly. It bugged me the first few times I put it to sleep while I was trying to go to sleep, but once I got tired enough all those worries left me. I no longer care about that bright light (although I seem to keep having dreams about traffic driving towards me...haha...jk).i also hate when my macbook snores
but i live with it. really, if you're gonna have your eyes closed and soon be unconscious, why does it matter?
