Path not closing with pen tool

When drawing inside or when drawing a shape on top of an other shape's anchorpoints (shape underneath is locked) I'm unable to close the path with the pentool.
Instead of closing the shape I put 2 anchorpoints on top of each other. Also don't see the small circle indication appearing to close of the path. 
Only solution found so far is joing anchorpoints, but I don't feel like doing that much longer.
Issue is only occuring since a couple of days. I have no issues with standard pentool drawing
Please help! (Thanks!)

Are you trying to preserve a bezier curve?

If not just use Ctrl-J (I'm guessing Cmd-J on Mac?), if you have a lot of open paths you can draw around the whole object(s) with the knife tool and it will close them all - see http://vectorboom.com/load/tips/techniques/pathclothing/16-1-0-158 for a better explanation. There are scripts too (see end of web page above)

If you need to preserve the bezier curve(s) of the end points you'll need a plug-in like VectorScribe.
