My computer was HOT this morning, when it should have just been sleeping, why was it still going?

Last night I locked my laptop, closed it up, and put it in its case to head home from work.  When I went to take it out of the case this morning, it was radiating heat through the case!!  I took it out and the fan was on full blast, and it was as hot as I've ever felt it.  The battery was almost dead, as a result of the fan having to be on all night.  My question is, why didn't it just go to sleep?!  I always do the same thing with it, and I have never seen it do that before.  Is this a common recurrence?  Should I change my laptop closing protocol, or is this just a fluke happenstance?  Luckily every thing seems to be still working properly, but I worry that if this happens again, I may not be so lucky, and it may even cause a fire!
