Not likely aneurysm: If your ptosis is so subtle you do not notice it, then you do not have ptosis. Brain aneurysm can cause ptosis by compression of the 3rd cranial nerve by commonly aneurysm of the posterior communicating artery. The ptosis can be partial. This is because the size of the aneurysm and the duration of compression determines degree of ptosis. If it is partial, it would not be obvious and severe.
