    this doesnt happen very often...probably twice since i got my macbook in july...
    i put my macbook to sleep when i go to bed....then in the middle of the night or early morning i hear a noise coming out of my macbook for a quick second even though it is closed and in sleep...

    the noise sounds like the hardware or dvd drive moving/starting up as if u were to wake up the macbook from sleep...(this is not the tone whenever u turn on the macbook)

    i think its the dvd drive...

    is this a problem? everything seems to be fine...it just woke me up for a quick second when i heard it...

    Bring it to an Apple Store and let them investigate it if you can miss it for a while;)

    Yeah I noticed my macbook doing that too sometimes. Like you can tell when it's sleeping when that light fades in and out but when I hear that noise I see the light stay solid then it'll go back to fading in and out. Never paid much mind to it hopefully its not biggie.

    do you have a bluetooth mouse or something hooked up to it? this could cause it waking up for a second before going back to sleep.

    I can assure you that I also experienced this a couple of weeks a couple of times during the night. My macbook woke up all sweaty and I had to pet it on the touchpad to make it fall back into sleep. No seriously it just woke me up a couple of times during the night.
    What really bugs me is that I don't want it to keep staying on if I accidentally forgets it plugged in and it's set to max performance. Waste of energy.
