What happens if the XO's lid is closed after the shutdown option is
selected in Sugar?

Is there a chance that the XO does not shut down - e.g. suspends or
gets stuck in some limbo state?

Is there a possibility for them to get damaged? I'd think that a
powered-on XO would get very hot if the lid was shut.
