    It seems my MBP is crashing when I shut the lid and it goes to sleep. When I open it the system restarts. It also asks me each time I reboot if i would like to turn bluetooth on even though I have that pref. turned off in settings.

    Any ideas?

    I would suggest repairing the Permissions. If that doesn't help, I would suggest trashing the Energy Saver preferences. If that doesn't work, do an Archive and Install of the OS. Beyond that, it may be an actual short in the system.

    I've repaired my permissions. I'll try messing around with certain settings and see what happens..

    Has anyone else had a similar problem?

    I have had similar problems lately though it just doesn't come back on at times when I re-open it.

    I press buttons and do all sorts of things but it will only come back on when I hold down the power and turn it off then on again

    Repaired permissions and all....

    How are you shutting your lid? Are you doing it pretty fast, then moving it somewhere?

    I bet your Sudden Motion Sensor got tripped.

    I had a pretty similar problem..

    After upgrading the RAM on my MPB from 2GB to 4, about half the times i'd open my lid, i'd either be greeted by the startup chime to find that my laptop rebooted itself or to find a black screen and unable to wake my laptop up.

    Popped out the new RAM and put back the old RAM in it and haven't had a problem since, now that I think about it I should probably get a replacement for the bad memory :p

    and as a side note.. .I ran the memory test in the apple hardware test program as well as a third party test and both said my memory was fine, so you can't always trust those programs.

    i'm getting that sleep-->come back to black screen with the beach ball spinning and spinning and spinning. 4 times in 2 days.

    my mbp is completely stock and up-to-date on the software updates.
