    I updated 2 Macbooks with the EFI firmware update and now I have a weird problem. Whenever I go to sleep on either machine, it won't do anything for like 10 seconds. That is, I'll still be able to open apps, files, play with the comp, etc. Then all of a sudden it'll start to sleep. At first, I thought it was maybe it usually takes 10sec to safe sleep but now it's just doing it with the display on. But even after I push sleep, wait 10seconds for display to turn off, then I have to wait another ~5-10sec to finally see the pulsing.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    It's a little annoying when I just want to close the lid and pack it up.

    Edit: Nevermind. A restart fixed it.

    Edit2: Nevermind. It still does it sometimes. It must be a program or something.

    It's possible that it's the SafeSleep update the hibernation image on the drive.

    How much memory is in it? The SafeSleep has to update the hibernation image on the drive before it completely sleeps. Also, all the programs need to be notified of the impending sleep - some programs may not respond quickly to that, and others may tell the OS to "hold on a minute" while the finish a task.
