I've memory blackouts, I guess I need to pay more attention to things...

Anyways, I did a SMC reset, and than I got paranoic that maybe I didn't shut it down and laptop was actually in sleep mode.

Is it possible to do SMC reset in sleep mode at all?

How would I check if I did? is there some kind of a log of resets? (I doubt this, as SMC is hardware based).

If I did and it's possible, what type of damage could I do to computer? to filesystem maybe?

Help my OCD tired brain please...
