    Hey all,

    I bought a MBP this February. For some reason, it won't go to sleep if I close the lid -- I have to manually go to the apple menu and press sleep. Any ideas? I tried a clean install, still no luck. :confused:

    Thanks.

    Sounds like the hardware switch inside the case is not working.

    I would at least call them to see what they say.

    Have you tried an Archive and Install?

    Don't assume it's hardware automatically because if it works by manually putting it to sleep there's a chance it's just a software mix up.

    Nobody is automatically blaming hardware.

    Original post said a clean install was done but it did not fix the issue.
