    Hey folks,

    As of last night, my MBP started acting very strangely. After entering my username and password, it would enter the desktop for a short period of time and then kick back into sleep mode; the screen would turn back to black. Sometimes it will let me stay on the desktop for a long time and other times it will hardly let me stay on the desktop. I called apple support and they had me start the computer in safe mode; even then it occasionally kicks me out. The tech guy said that it was a "strange software issue" and not a hardware issue. I thought it was a hard drive issue; my hard drive makes an odd sound when it unlocks, but it has been doing that for quite some time with no issues.

    How should I remedy this problem? I am running OS X; not leopard or snow leopard. I know I need to upgrade, but this shouldn't be happening.

    Thanks,

    B

    Never mind. The problem persists. I tried resetting the SMC by turning the computer off, removing the power cord, taking the battery out, pressing the power button for 5 seconds, replacing the battery and then starting it up again. It still returns to sleep mode.
