    Hello all,

    I'm having trouble with my MacBook Pro going to sleep randomly. I will be working on the computer, and everything will go black. I can still here the computer running. When trying to wake it up from what seems like sleep, no buttons will work. The only thing I can do is do a hard shutdown, holding down power button, and then turning it back on.

    This originally happened about 2 months ago, and only once. Since about 2 days ago, it has been happening about 2 times a day. It occurs when the temperature of the computer is cold as well as when it is warm. I am not running too many programs when it happens. I have reset the PRAM.

    Any ideas / comments would be appreciated and helpful. Here are my system specs:

    15 inch Macbook Pro
    2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
    4 GB 1067 mHz DDR3
    Mac OS X Lion 10.7

    Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help diagnose the problem.

    Thanks again.

    When you say that you can "here" the machine still running, do you mean that it's still playing music, and it makes noise when you change the volume? Your backlight/inverter/inverter cable may be going out.
