    Hi- My Macbook, started a couple days ago, will just have its screen go black and go to sleep. I did a repair permissions which had no effect. I turned screen saver off and made it sleep after an hour, yet, it seems randomly it will just go to sleep.

    Any ideas?

    It's the same principle; it fixes any unstable issues. Try it and see if it works, you have nothing to lose.
    EDIT: Err, sorry, that's not the correct video. Hold on.

    EDIT 2: Ok, this is the video I should have given you.

    My friend's new MacBook Pro was doing this and he had to have the logic board replaced.

    I did the diagnostic test, which was normal, I cleared the PR RAM, and the thing where u take the battery out and hold down power button for 10 seconds. I did the repair permissions.

    It will still randomly go to sleep. Its plugged in also into the wall.

    Any other ideas? (This is for a Macbook, not MBP)
