    I put my new MacBook Pro to sleep earlier today before heading to the coffee shop. When I pulled it out of my backpack when I got there, it was extremely hot. I opened the lid and had a black screen. I waited a few minutes but the display never turned on so I had to do a hard shutdown. Ouch.

    Apparently I am not the only one. Lots of people over on the Apple support forum are saying the same thing. Might be one of the first known issues with the new MacBook Pros.

    Mine is the 2.4.

    I have the same issue. That and my left fan "buzzes" and its horrible, i am taking it to get fixed... if they dont fix the buzzing i am getting my money back.

    Im sure the sleep issue will my fixed by drivers or something in 10.5.6 or 10.5.7

    This has only happened to me one time, and it was extremely hot when I took it out of my backpack and i also had to do a hard shutdown. Now i just make sure that the sleep LED is pulsing before I put it away or before I leave it, then I know its in the SLEEP mode and not just...what..standby? (Solid white LED) I've had zero issues with it since then though so im not too worried about it

    This also happened to me and I think I have stopped the issue for the time being by turning off, "Allow BT devices to wake computer from sleep". I could actually move the mouse around on my screen when I opened the lid, but could not click on anything.

    I wish there was a way to only let BT turn the computer on if there is an external display connected.

    At this point I am not going to put the computer in sleep mode if I plan on encasing it.

    I had the same exact thing happen on 2.53. I got to school and the computer was incredibly hot. I turned it on and had 33% left of a full charge. It was in my backpack for about 45 minutes. When I powered it on (hard reboot), the fans were running full blast and CPU temps were very high.

    I didn't check to see if it was sleeping before I left, but I assumed that it was asleep. I did have BT turned on.

    Once you've paired your devices, you folks should really turn off the Discoverable mode, this stops other devices which haven't been pair to your machine from seeing your system, adds a little more security. Also, perhaps you'd like to disable Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer.

    Umm... don't forget the Wake options in energy saver, as on occasions Airport activity could wake your system even when it's supposed to be sleeping!!
