MacBook shuts down only after coming out of sleep

I've been reading the forums (time permitting), but it seems the problem hasn't been pinpointed yet.

Mine shuts down within a minute of coming out of sleep. It usually shuts down twice in a row.

It's almost always plugged in. I'm up to date on software and I have no hardware upgrades. Diagnostics report no problems.

If I didn't know any better I'd say firefox may have something to do with it as this is the first app I start. Today I used a different app and it ran fine after that. Hard to say for sure though.

I think I'll call Mac Care just so its documented. What's the latest?

That definitely sounds like a job for AppleCare. Just out of interest though, what do you have plugged in from third party manufacturers and what third party apps are running when this happens? :)
