Power first: yes.
Authored by: MattHaffner on Jun 12, '06 11:22:09AM

My laptop travels home with me every night, and it gets used as a desktop during the day with the lid closed. On both my older Ti and my newer Al, unplugging the power first before anything else prevents the wakeup. I don't have a MB* to test it on, but I would imagine the behavior is the same--try it out!

Even if you forget (like I do sometimes) and unplug out of order, there's no harm done. The machine might wake up and go back to sleep, but you don't need to open the screen. Within 5-10 sec of you removing the power, if the clam is closed, it should go to sleep.
