My wife got a new 13" macbook pro a couple of weeks ago, and we are having trouble with it. My last day to return/exchange is tomorrow, so I'm looking for advice, things to try before I decide. Here's the machine's history and what I've been experiencing: History: - Tried migrating everything, (users, setting, apps from 2007 Macbook). Used wired ethernet. Near the end it failed. Each side was stuck, said the other was unresponsive, and one minute left to cancel. Never finished. Rebooted. Seemed to have migrated most of the apps and stuff. Tried migration assistant again, still never finished. - Since I didn't know what state the computer was in, did a full reload of the new MBP using install DVD's. Did Migration assistant again, this time from external USB time machine backup. This worked all the way through. Having all my apps and settings are great, However, I'm experiencing the following issues: - Homesharing failures. This is documented in other threads, maybe Apple will fix this. Wondering if I hadn't reloaded or migrated if I would have had issues... - Occasionally, the system takes an extra long time to wake from having the lid closed. Normally, it only takes a few seconds for the screen to come up and be ready to go. One of the best features of a Mac, IMHO. However, occasionally, the system will be totally unresponsive for 30 seconds or more when opening the lid. Seems to just happen randomly every few lid openings. Mouse pointer won't move, or will get beachballing. I've NEVER experienced anything like this on my 2010" 15" MBP or 2007 Macbook. This is my biggest complaint. Wondering if this Mac's reloading or migrating history is causing this, or maybe some hardware issue? Anyone else experience this? What could be causing this? What sort of logs can I look at to figure out what's going on? One thing to note, is I forced booting into 32 bit kernel, as that's the only way time machine will work with my HP Mediasmart server. Could this be an issue? I'm wondering if I should exchange this system (which also has a slight mis-alignment between the lid and body), or re-load it and use a different procedure this time? Did I get a lemon? Is it from migrating from an old system? Should I do something different? Any suggestions? - Use migration assistant and just transfer apps? Settings too? - Reload and start fresh. Don't use migration assistant, but manually copy over my files, and itunes library. Re-install my apps. I know this is the approach I have always done in Windows. I can do this if I have to. (I would sort of like to change the account name from what was used on the old Mac, but have all the files back. Especially iTunes playlists. If I use this method will I have to edit the XML itunes library to change the full path name? - Exchange for new one. - Create a new user, and see if the slow resume problem happens? - Other? I'm leaning towards an exchange, (why not, really?), but wondering if I should do something different this time. Sorry for the long winded post, and extensive bold highlights , but I have to decide by tomorrow! Thanks for any help!
