    Hello!

    I haven't been on Macrumors for so long! I missed you guys!

    So here's the deal. I have 2 problems with my Macbook air 13" ( 1st gen).

    a) It does not go to sleep propoerly. When I close the lid it only goes to sleep if it is not plugged in. If I shut the lid down while it is connected to power it will no go to sleep. I check the power options and they are all on default. Also if I manage to put it to sleep by unplugging it, and then plug it back once it's alseep it will turn back on a little bit after. I have no idea why it does this.

    b) I have frequent overheat issues, above the keyboard next to where the power cord gets connected. My fan is almost constantly on, and I am wondering if it is lion or something else.

    If you have any questions please ask me. If you want anything clarified!

    Thanks!

    Open "Activity Monitor" to see what your Mac is doing.

    Are you using websites with Flash? That's always good to keep your fans running.

    You are a gem! There was 'Unarchiver' running, it was trying to extract a file but didn't actually manage to do it, It has been doing it for over a week now! It was using 98 percent of CPU, i'll see if that fixes anything! Thanks!
