    Well at first i thought leopard died. so i reformatted it but now its doing the same thing AFTER i installed all the updates.

    THE PROBLEM: whenever i to boot up my external via apple mouse and wireless keyboard, it goes instantly back to sleep. It worked until in installed a last batch of updates. now i have to leave my laptop open to type this up. On top of that, it doesnt recognize my external display so i am still on a low resolution sighhhh. I don't know why all of a sudden it stopped working but i think its a software thing definitely because once i formatted it worked, then i put all my mail/music backups back in, and installed updates last and it stopped working!!! NOOOOO anyone have this problem too?

    I'm having a similar problem with my mbp 2.2ghz, my external monitor (1680x1050) will only go up the 1440x900 res of the mbp monitor. Only happened after updating to 10.5.2 today.......

    I am having problems in clamshell. I am hoping there will be fixes for this soon. It is very inconvenient.

    I always update my mini first, and then move on to the MBP is all is well. I saw no problems when I did the mini, and now the MBP is acting up. Oh well...
