Mac portables restarting/waking from sleep when lid is closed, resurfaced

It's an issue that resurfaces every few months (last covered here) with the same symptoms: some Mac portables -- particularly MacBooks and MacBook Pros -- fail to go to sleep automatically when the lid is closed, or wake up from sleep involuntarily while the lid is closed, resulting it what we've affectionately dubbed the "hot laptop in bag syndrome," a label applied because the user is often notified that this problem has occurred when they retrieve a scorching hot portable from their bag with the fans blaring. If the unit is indeed contained in a bag when this issue occurs, the portable will sometimes shut itself off automatically to avoid overheating component damage.

One MacFixIt reader recently wrote:

"Every now and then when I close the laptop lid and put it to sleep, my laptop with restart itself rather than goto sleep. Just wondering if you've seen any other similar problems and know of any possible culprits. I'm running all the newest updates, and noticed the problem shortly after updating the OS."

Weird. Hasn't happened to me. *knock, knock*

Other than the occasional heat when it's on (normally), a few memory related kernal panics, the little guy has been solid. Thanks for the info though... I'll keep an eye out for anything like that.
