I know its really easy to close the lid and leave the machine, it's great to come back and just open and start using but is it a problem to leave a macbook in sleep for a long time? I realise it will be using some juice but its a PITA to keep shutting down and booting up all the time.

As this is my first mac just wondered on your thought

:D

I don't shutdown my MBP for weeks on end...

I've done this with every Powerbook I've ever owned and never have had any related problems...

I thought that sleep was suspend to ram, not to disk. :/

it's an option

If you go to energy saver in the system preferences... enable "Put hard disk to sleep when possible" to get the best results on the battery (note- make sure your looking at the "Battery" one, not the "Power Adapter"
