    MBA works fine on sleeping when i click on the apple logo and click on sleep.

    When I try to use Option + Command + Eject the MBA starts to go into sleep and flickers back on. Sometimes it takes me 3 or 4 times of this key combination to get it to finally sleep.

    Any thoughts?

    I've seen the sleep problem before on a 13" air I had back in december. However, I thought I saw that apple released a firmware update that fixes this?

    Hmm.. so this is a software issue?
    I just picked up this MBA about 2 weeks ago..
    Any idea where I can download the firmware update that may fix this?

    I called AppleCare and they basically wanted me to take this into the Apple Store to get it fixed. They were not able to really solve this problem

    Sorry, I meant click on the Apple in order to check software update— second item from the top of the drop down menu.

    There was a firmware update for sleep issues but I think it was "wake from sleep" not going to sleep. Still, best to make sure all the latest software/firmware is installed.
