    Hello Good Mac People!

    I have a macbook, which i love, and there are no problems with it that thwart that love.

    Every once in a while, with the lid closed, it wakes from sleep.

    Sometimes it is when i jostel the bluetooth mouse i have connected to it, and sometimes it seems to wake when i do not jostel the bluetooth mouse....

    i turned off the mouse and it has not recently awoken, but what other reasons are there for a macbook to wake from sleep, even with the lid closed, for no apparent reason?

    it also encounters some waking up issues when i open the lid and i press a key. ? it wakes very slowly sometimes, other times, instantly....

    Is it connected via ethernet cable to a network? maybe some sort of wake on lan activity type thing?
    Maybe it just doesn't want to sleep anymore;)

    I have some of the same problems too.

    Same here, with the sometimes slow/sometimes fast wake up from sleep.

    Others include that sometimes it won't wake at all; if I open it, it just displays a black screen. Nothing will wake it up, and then I have to restart it.

    Blech... If the 17" MBP's are cooler without a whine, I'm going to call in and complain until I can have this sucker replaced with a 17" MBP for free. It would really be nice to have a dual-layer SuperDrive too.

    Any bluetooth active phones near your Macbook? I wake my iMac up with my phone sometmes. Or perhaps maybe someone (else) is scanning for bluetooth devices that could cause your Macbook to wake.
