    hey folks
    Good news and bad news; I just bought a new MBP. The bad news is it is a fan of kernal panics, i've probably already had about 5-8. After the first one, I reinstalled the OS from the disks included in the box (I wanted to drop the extra printer drivers anyways). This didn't help. It's the higher end (stock config) MBP with Santa Rosa. I really don't want to have to take it back. Do you need any info to help diagnose this? I'll try to save a report log next time it happens. Any ideas on things I could try/test to see what the problem may be?

    Thanks for your help...:(

    Do you know how to re-sit the memory? Try that.

    Do you know how to get the panic.log? Post that.

    TAKE IT BACK NOW! There are lemons in both cars and computers. You'll just have more issues, guaranteed.

    I'm running upper tier SR MBP right now and its been smooooth.

    from the looks of that log (not that i know what i'm talking about), it seems to be something with the airport.

    I reseated the RAM; I pulled both and then switched their slots. we'll see how that goes. Any ideas coming from the panic log?

    it's been an hour of constant use since I reseated the RAM and no kernel panics yet. That's a good sign, but please keep any ideas coming. I'll take all the help I can get. Thanks guys and gals!

    Hey there, I just picked one up myself today (the $2500 model), and had two panics as soon as I got it home. By panic, I assume you mean the shadowed screen that descends over everything like a curtain before telling you to restart?

    I noticed it was corresponding with some weird Airport behavior, e.g. perfect wireless signal, but unresponsive internet access. After turning security off, I tried (on a whim) switching from WPA to WPA2, and suddenly the problems disappeared. I've been working nonstop for the past 5-6 hours without a single hitch.

    Are you running WPA and/or WPA/WPA2 security? Try setting to strictly WPA2 if you have that option. I'd be curious to know if that has any impact, and if it does (and I continue to have no further panics), I assume it's something to do with the 802.11n spec or hardware, because I'm staring at my regular (original) Core Duo MBP and it's been working just fine with WPA.

    Matt

    Oh yeah, I think we're on to something here. Check out my panic logs. Note highlights in bold. Now go have a look at yours.

    Hmmmmmmm. Interesting. You might be right. However, I'm on a college wifi network so I can't change security settings. But, for the past hour, I've had full connectivity to the wireless and haven't had one kernel panic yet. I'm going to try disconnecting/reconnecting to the wireless to see if I can induce one.

    Of note: I've had kps without even being in OS X. I tried running DiskWarrior off a CD (ie I booted from the CD) and kernel panicked two separate times. I would assume that the airport had nothing to do with it that time. I had one of my more CS inclined friends to read the panic logs. He was saying that there are page faults, which could point to problems with RAM. So hopefully my reseating of the RAM fixed things. We'll see...

    Good luck!

    did you check to see if your HDD is failing/verified?

    yup. SMART was fine (checked with Onyx) and I checked the disk in disk utility. Going on 2.5 hours without another kernel panic. Bed time now, we'll see how things go tomorrow. Thanks for your continued support.

    Matt, try reseating your RAM. I think that worked for me, I haven't had a kernel panic since I've done it (10:30 last night EST). I'll use the MBP all day with the wireless on and we'll see how it goes...

    D'oh

    I just kernel panicked again. I was on the wireless and checking my email in Mail.app. Back to the apple store you go!

    Thanks for your help everyone.

    It was WPA for me - I haven't had a single panic since I switched to WPA2, and I've beat the heck out of things, including running the yes > /dev/null on both processors, playing Civ 4, surfing the net, running VPN clients, etc.

    I got a similar panic log regarding the airport.. the panic usually occur when the wireless internet stopped access, and I tried to reconnect.. and it crashes when I click on the wireless icon while it is connecting..
    Im using a macbook though...

    I have an appointment around 5pm EST at the genius bar this evening. I'll post my results. Hopefully, if they know what is going wrong, the information will help you guys out a bit. If not, maybe they'll exchange it for another one. Wish me luck!

    I bought a new SR MBP yesterday. I've been getting random kernel panics regarding the Airport wireless also. Sometimes I'll go a few minutes, sometimes a few hours. I do notice that my internet will intermittently stop working for a few seconds. I don't know if I have a bad Airport unit or if it's not seeded right or what. I've tried both WPA and WPA2. Hopefully justflie can get some answers later today. I don't feel like returning/exchanging my machine. It's not even 24hrs old! Other than that, I love my machine. :D

    Maybe we should start a voting about who's having this Kernel Panic to get an overview about how many of the brand new MBPs are affected by this issue.

    Weird. Maybe it was something else I did without realizing? Just like you, I was getting the internet pauses and kernel panics occurring at the same time. They've utterly stopped now, and I'm no longer having the internet pauses. I've been using this thing all morning without a problem.

    Note: Make sure, if you're having the issue, to submit it to Apple per the submission tool. I don't know how carefully they read those, but I have to assume their parsing tools might flag these as critical if enough similiar show up in the same time period.

    It's possible the errors are software/driver related and occur when something quirky occurs with the airport.

    I don't have too much software installed. It's pretty much a fresh copy of OS X. It'll panic when I'm just using Firefox. I hope it is something simple. I really don't feel like taking the MBP back for repair/exchange. :(

    Also, I wonder if it has anything to do with my router. I'm using a Buffalo router running DD-WRT with WPA2 AES enabled.

    why not play around with some wireless settings and try a different auth scheme. perhaps there is some bug in the driver?

    Update

    hey all,

    I went to the Apple store and they exchanged my machine for a new one. So far, so good, it seems to be working perfectly. No more dropping out of wireless connections either. The genius was leaning towards a problem with the airport card itself (ie it was loose). He said loose cards were a problem in the 12" powerbooks and this sounded like that. Anyways, I had the dubious distinction of being the first "capture" for their fixit system nationwide. I guess when something weird/important happens (ie kernel panics in just released hardware) they enter all the info into a database of some sort, and it was totally empty before my computer info was entered. Lol, mine was the first big official screwup. yay for me.

    As I said,so far, so good. No problems whatsoever, hopefully this continues. Good luck to all of you.

    -George
