Since having my MacBook (Over a year) I've very rarely shut it down completely.

I always close the lid, and pick it up the next day. When I open the lid the screen comes on, and that's the way I like it.

However, since the HS update, when I come to use my macbook the next day, I open the lid and... nothing. I have to press the power button, hear the "noise" that apple makes when it loads. Then nothing. Then press the power button again. It will then boot up.

Anyone else aware of shutting down issues?

Open the Console app, close the lid, open the lid, Open Console app, see what's new
