    Hi Guys,

    Early today I put my macbook into sleep (Clamshell mode) and went out for dinner, when I came back home I pressed a button from my wireless keyboard to wake it up as usual. I heard the superdrive's active noise and saw the signal white light was lighten up. However the external display was totally black and couldn't be waken up so as a result I need to reboot my macbook by pressing the power button due to two black screens.

    After reboot my macbook I was confused, the wireless keyboard is not working and where the hell is my bluetooth icon?! It's completely disappeared on the manu bar, even in the system preference!
    I checked the bluetooth manu in system profiler and it said "no information"..I mean what the Fxxx?!

    Does anyone has the same issue?

    How is this related to the update? You mentioned nothing about it in your post. Like "This just started happening after i updated"
    Did you JUST update?
