    Has anyone else been having their MBP waking up when they move it around too much? I'm hearing the tell tale sound of the optical drive trying to spin up when too much bumping around occurs with my MBP. Pulling it out of the back seat and plopping it down on the front seat (In the case of course.), having it slap on my hip when I'm walking into the office, etc.
    I've already tried resetting the PMU but no good. The funny thing its not consistent. Sometimes I can force it to happen. Other times I can spin it around by the corners in my hands and natta. It stays asleep. Very weird.
    Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

    Mine sometimes does this too. It quickly goes back to sleep once stable again though...
