    Very strange. Every 4 times or so my computer won't turn on at all after sleep...


    MacBook pro mid 2009 with latest software.

    how long are you waiting? My MBP usually wakes up within a few seconds. When I run it thru a monitor, it takes a few extra seconds to fully wake up.

    Applecare? I'd contact Apple and make a Genius appointment.

    Yeah, until next June.

    Every 10 times I open my comp from sleep, 6 times it will not turn on. At all. Waited a good 5 minutes.

    The other 4 times, it opens by pressing buttons and stuff.

    Sounds like a dying GPU (9600M GT). The GPU in my Mid-2009 MBP is already dead. Use gfxCardStatus, to switch permanently to the integrated 9400M, if possible.
