I bought one of the 2.4 GHz MacBook Pros (Santa Rosa chipset) recently. Unfortunately, when I wake it up from sleep (by opening the lid) and plug in an external monitor (w/ VGA adapter) the screen locks up immediately, and I have to force power down. Has anyone else seen this? Is there a way to get it out of this state other than rebooting? If I can telnet into the macbook when its in this state, does anyone know what (if any) processes I can restart to fix this? (like in linux, you can restart the X11 process) It seems to lock up around 1 out of every 3 times I try plugging it in. I've had no trouble with my old PowerBook G4 and the same monitor. I've tried all the usual stuff, resetting the PMU, PRAM, etc. Connecting the monitor when running Windows XP in Boot Camp seems to work fine. I have to say I'm not entirely happy with my latest purchase from Apple. I've got this monitor lock up thing, and I've also had the kernel panics related to Airport.
