Nothing but sleep/wake problems with the new Unibody MacBook Pro
Unfortunately I have nothing but sleep and wake problems with my brand new Unibook MacBook Pro.
Before anyone asks: Yes, I did install the latest 1.6 firmware update.
The latest incident:
I just unplugged my MBP from my external screen and the power. I did not close the lid first. What I do is that I wait for the menu bar to move from the external screen to the MBP screen. Then I close the lid. I moved to another room and opened it. No problem and I worked on it for a bit. Then I closed it and made a coffee. Now I’m back and open the MBP and the screen stays dark. The white power led did turn off. There is no way to get the screen back on.
Only a reboot works. I lose my workspace and some open files. Lame. What is this? Some Wintel piece of crap?
For the record: I run no strange software on this Mac. This is my main development machine and I depend on it daily. So I do my best to keep it as standard as possible. It’s a default 10.5.5 install with the most non-standard thing on it being LaunchBar.
This is getting so annoying that I am now thinking about selling this Unibody MacBook Pro and getting the previous model. This is pretty much an unworkable situation for someone like me who moves around a lot.
