    My macbook has developed a problem where when the lid is shut and the power is connected it wakes up from sleep and then goes back to sleep and repeats this process every 30-60 seconds.

    What's weird is it doesn't wake from sleep and get stuck in this loop when
    —the lid is open and the power is connected and I select sleep from the Apple menu
    —when the lid is shut and the power is NOT connected and is running from the battery

    I recently updated my mac to Snow Leopard and put in a new HDD and since doing so the problem has been occurring.

    Any ideas what might be causing them problem?

    I've been having the exact same problem. It is hellish.
