 Keep Mac from waking when the lid is opened

No overheating here but I have pulled a fully charged Powerbook from my laptop bag and had only 25 percent charge left due to this problem. So cool, I am going to give this a try.

"This tip solves a problem that I've experienced myself and many of my clients have complained about - laptops waking from sleep while in their cases because the latch won't keep the lid closed. This can cause overheating, which can lead to a variety of other problems, like hard drive failures, etc. "
