Ok, if I select restart, it will shut down, monitor off, but just sit there with the power LED lit, and not reboot.

Reset PRAM......

Any ideas on what could cause this?

I did reset PRAM, and I did remove and reinsert the battery.

As far as putting to sleep, waking, then restarting.... it doesn't restart and that's the issue.

THIS IS A FRESH INSTALL OF LION - AND DOES THE SAME ON A SNO LEO INSTALL

Well, to reset SMC, you unplug it from power, wait 15 seconds, and then reconnect power?

That happens every time I use it. I have it on a power strip and turn the strip off every time after use...... effectively the same thing.

Any other ideas?
