    So, my aluminum macbook is having a weird "glitch"...

    I was fidgeting with my cell phone (LG Venus, i think). i had my phone slid open, and i happened to run it along the right side of the macbook, near the return and delete keys... and it put my computer to sleep. i did this a couple more times to make sure i was right and not going crazy. what the heck?

    Command-Option-Eject Key puts your computer to sleep.

    There's a magnet somewhere in the case on the MacBook that when the lid closes it flips a switch that tells the computer to sleep. You've stumbled into that switch :)
