MacBook Pro Retina–Closing lid does not always put laptop to sleep–Overheats in Bag
August 7, 2012 11 Comments
I updated my MacBook Pro Retina with latest fix for Sleep + Nap. Today on my way to work, I closed the lid of the MacBook Pro, and when I got into the office, I took it out my bag and it was running extremely hot! I was surprised, as closing the lid should put it to sleep and not consume so much power. This is extremely dangerous for such an expensive laptop and should be fixed asap, this is unacceptable Apple, please fix this asap.
I run OSX Mountain Lion 10.8 (All UPDATES are installed)
- Carbon Copy
MacBook Pro with Retina display, iOS 5.1.1
This is unacceptable big time, and allot of other people are having problems with the MacBook Pro Retina and sleep mode when closing the lid. In fact I would go so far as to say it is a Health and Safety issue and if they don’t fix it asap, a possible mass recall on the laptops, it does not take much for this laptop to overheat in a bag if sleep did not work, and there is no light to verify if it went to sleep successfully.
Lots of people having issues here:
