    Hey all, I recently noticed something rather peculiar about my MacBook. When I put my computer to sleep, the sleep light never does what it used to. As far as I remember, the light is supposed to very bright, then go dim, and then go back to being bright correct? Well, since I installed the latest OS X update, I've noticed that my sleep light never gets dimmer. It just stays on full brightness all the time. Any suggestions to help fix this problem?

    Thanks :D

    I don't think it is an SMC issue. I guess it could be, but I think some process (or lack there of) is just stopping the computer from going into sleep mode and it's just turning the screen off.

    But I have no solution.
