For some reason, my MBP has stopped going to sleep when the lid is closed. Console logs don't show any powersaving events (such as when you forcibly sleep it). Is there likely to be some corrupted preference file that causes this behaviour? It still seems to do it even if there's nothing running.

On battery it seemed to be fine last night, but this is the second session on mains that it's exhibited this behaviour.

I don't know if this is the same, but I had problems with my PowerBook if I didn't shut the lid 'confidently'. If I bounce-closed[1] it it didn't sleep, and just sat there getting very hot.

[1] So the lid almost closed, bounced open a bit, and then was pressed to.

No, I worked out what it is. I usually end up closing the lid to sleep the computer, but if I'm not doing anything that will make it hot (such as playing NWN) then I'll leave the lid closed - in which case I normally sleep it with the key combination.

In this instance, I think I opened the lid, played a game and then expected it to sleep when I closed it again, but it didn't. This must have been because the internal screen was off, as I'd not slept and then woken the machine with the lid open so it was technically running in a 'lid closed' state.
