Hi! I have a late 07 15" SR with the NVidia 8600M GT video chip. I've had issues with the wake from sleep from almost a month after I bought it. Now, my laptop would sometimes go to sleep by itself even while I'm working on it. I also started using it with an 24" external. At first everything was okay. But about a month ago, my mbp's screen would sometimes go out, leaving me with only my external monitor. When this happens the sleep light is on. I'm able to keep working, but I'm stuck with just one monitor. While connected to the external, I've also had issues during bootup. It sometimes (about 1/3 of the time) would get stuck in the blue screen right before the logon screen comes up. I'd have unplug power, remove battery, and let it sit for a few minutes before trying again. Looking through this forum, and other mac forums, I see the wake from sleep issues (SR), external monitor issues, and new "flickering" issues (unibodies). There are little work around that may work for a while, but the problems keep coming back. It seems NVidia does not care much about QC, and Apple, as well as other manufacturers who used their chips are having problems because of this. Frankly, for mbp users, these types of problems should not be present on laptops that cost more than 2,000 USD. I'd like to get rid of my mbp. But I do see that the new mbp's are not without their own problems either. So, now way I'm spending another 2k USD for another set of video problems. So, does anybody know if Apple will still keep on using NVidia's fast (if they work) chips? Or would Apple finally see the light and just go with ATI or some other video chip maker?
