    This thing is really getting on my nerves! First off, it has the 8600GT so you know what that means:cool: I've already sent it in for a non clicking trackpad, dead pixels which they did not fix, and broken keys! Now my battery life is horrendous with 306 cycles and it is overheating to the point of a kernel panic! What should I do, Genius Appt?

    That is all you can do really... Unless you tear into it yourself.

    at the moment i am really hating how my MBP 2010 does not go into sleep when the lid is left open. Sometimes it does, other times it doesn't. When it is the latter it COMPLETELY logs me out of everything, closes my programs, and sends me to the initial purple background screen of the log in. very frustrating.

    Maybe your MBP might just be the proverbial 'lemon'?

    Judged by this why many people in this forum say dell or other PC manufactures have worse build quality than apple?

    Well, every line of products will have lemons which will have problems, regardless of brand. Mistakes happen.

    Because people don't post here saying oh my Macbook is perfect!! The point of this forum is to ask for help and advice.

    True - that would also be pretty spiteful as well if people were having problems and there was a thread just about how this guy's Mac experience has been going great.

    Out of all my friends I'm the only one who has issues with their Macbook. I have the 2010 MBP with the freezing issues. I've narrowed it down to the Dynamic Switching (Graphic drivers). So I'm trying to work with my local Apple Genius to get it fixed.

    Sorry I got off subject, but I'm just trying to prove a point. I have countless friends with Mac's no issues other then mine.

    8600GT is not a good start, maybe with more issues come out, APPLE will send you a new model to replace your current one.

    When I went in to buy a spare power adapter, the guy made me wait so that he could fetch an apparently repaired MacBook for two sexy girls that came in like 20 minutes later. I felt like slapping him - but then I remembered they were sexy and gave him a pass.

    That is a very good question. What I believe is that price/quality-wise Apple is certainly not superior to Dell etc. But the design is more beautiful, the OS better and with the alu unibody they have a winner. The electronic components o.t.o.h are underpowered, very expensive low quality crap.

    That is actually a setting in system preferences -> security. In the general tab, it has an option to log out after a certain time of inactivity. All you have to do is uncheck that box.
