    I bought a MBA 13" a month ago. After a week or so my screen just shut down completely, and the logic had to be changed. Since then, I've had problem with slow startup times (maybe twice as long as before) and, even more disturbing, when i shut the lid to make the computer go to sleep, it does so only for a couple of minutes. If I leave it for lets say 30 mins, it has shut down itself.

    This is my first mac, so I have litte experience when it comes to trouble shooting, but after some detective work i found some kind of log. This is what it says:


    2011-02-24 11.04.28 configd[13] Sleep: Platform Failure - BATT 73
    com.apple.message.domain: com.apple.powermanagement.sleep
    com.apple.message.signature: Platform Failure
    com.apple.message.result: Failure
    com.apple.message.uuid: 8CCE7FC0-7A7F-45C6-B996-D95AA9053368


    Anyone?

    Looks like you lost power while sleeping. Did the battery have a charge when it was sleeping?

    If it happens again I would take it into your closest Apple store have ask them about it. Perhaps it is a battery issue.

    hard to say

    but my rule of thumb is that if such problems happen that early, push for full replacement, as opposed to replacing parts. At this point though, not sure a full replacement is possible.

    sorry, hope it gets fixed!
