    Yes it'll sleep on battery or on AC when you close the lid.

    yeah he doesn't have InsomniaX so it must be some sort of hardware problem there....

    thanks for your help

    Sometimes it takes a little while to go to sleep, especially if something is going on in the background.

    yeah not sure about that he closed the lid before he went to bed and woke up and it still didn't sleep. I was reading on the net somewhere that when the AC is hooked up it won't sleep.
