    My macbook pro will sometimes have choppy graphics after its woken up from sleep, such Expose not being smooth and the mouse pointer jumping around. I've got Leopard installed but it happened under Tiger as well. A restart is the only thing that will put it back to normal? Any ideas?

    Same thing here. I've posted about it a bunch of times. I also occasionally have this problem where it doesn't want to wake at all. That hasn't happened for while. One thing I've read is that you should turn off the "automatically reduce screen brightness before screen sleep" setting. Didn't help for me but has for others. Apparently it's a known issue and should be fixed in 10.5.1 (hopefully).

    I can confirm this. Got it too...
    But not every time I wake it from sleep though.

    All over the place
    Maybe all it needs is a cup of coffee. :p

    I had a similar issue with a brand new Macbook Pro, the day after I received it. I sent the machine back for a replacement although I am sure the problem (if it is a hardware problem) would be easily fixable.

    Many people report problems coming out of sleep if they had wifi enabled at the time it went to sleep. Try turning off airport, closing the lid, then waking it. When it comes back to life, it won't be searching for the last wifi network it was using..

    Trying it now.

    Also... how do you know if your computer is sleeping vs. hibernating?
