    hey guys, whenever i close the lid of my mbp, it used to sleep immediately. However, after upgrading from SL to lion it takes a good 10-15secs before it sleeps. i've tried searching online for help but to no avail. does anyone know whats going on? any advice is appreciated. thanks in advance!

    It's always taken mine 10-15 seconds to go to sleep... it always goes to sleep eventually though so i just throw it in my bag and it gets there eventually.

    Ive noticed this as well. My MBP used to sleep within 2 seconds on SL, but with Lion it takes about 10-15 seconds. A bit of an inconvenience.
