    Hi! I just put my MBP on sleep mode and noticed that the sleep light was blinking nonstop. Is this normal? It's the first time I think this has ever happened.

    it's like the 'breathing light' for the macbook. note that if you leave your mbp for several days unplugged & on sleep mode, it's battery will die & need to be recharged & of course, the breathing light will stop.

    Is it a slow pulsing? Like it's snoring/breathing? If it is, that's normal. It can take a few moments after you close the lid before the sleep light starts pulsing. The pulsing indicates that the Mac has gone to sleep properly and the hard disk has stopped spinning. You have to wait for the light to start pulsing before you put the Mac in a bag for transporting.
