    hey peeps!

    I hope someone can help me i have a 10 month old macbook air 11"!

    :confused:its developed a bit of a hiccup! for some strange reason when ever i shut it down and then close the lid it turns back on!

    I have tried reseting the PRAM as per the apple site but it makes no difference!!

    Ive also tried leaving it a while before closing the lid but it still turns back on!

    It happened a couple of weeks ago so i did a fresh install and that seemed to cure it! but now for some reason its come back!!

    Anyone got any ideas on what i need to do to sort it??

    Thanks allot

    i have this problem too.

    when the laptop is asleep and the lid is closed with AC power plugged in; you can still here the fans running, it gets very hot when left for several hours. (fans running at 4000 with lid shut! this cannot be good)

    however when i pull out the ac power the fans stop and only now it will go properly to sleep.

    my routine now is to close lid and pull out ac power every time!!
