    Hi Folks,

    I'm still getting a black screen after awakening from sleep, with no response at all.
    (forcing me to do a reboot - holding down power button)

    Not regularly, probably every month or so.....

    Is this a common problem with Mac OS X Lion and MacBook Pro's (2011 models)

    Thanks for any response.

    : )

    Have you applied all the apple software updates and firmware updates available?

    No it should not be a common problem. If it happens again next time and you are close to an apple store probably worth a visit in.

    Clean install. Forget the Apple store. That's all they'll do.
