    Hello all,

    I've got a 15" MBP and a case. Can I put my MBP in sleep mode and leave it in my case? I've searched, and have seen a few comments for and against. Is there any official word from Apple on the matter?

    Also, while a MacBook Pro is in sleep mode, is it any more bump-vulnerable than when it's off? My usual means of transportation is pretty bumpy.

    Thanks,
    ~truggl

    Yeah its fine to do that in sleep mode. All moving parts are turned off when its in sleep and no extra heat is produced so its all good ;)

    Great, thanks. Does Apple actually say this somewhere, just to be safe?
