    My D700 hex core/64G RAM/256GB flash has so far performed well, but recently has started to suffer from a hard shutdown on wake from sleep. I simply hit Esc to wake the computer and it's dead. Hitting the power button starts it and I get a error report on boot up.

    I've had three so far in the last month or so, advice?

    I'd like to run through my options before taking it to the "Dummy" bar.

    The folks at the "Dummy" bar are not useful for issues like this. I have seen a few postings like this in Apple Forum. Maybe you can go there and review the postings.

    I would recommend that you contact AppleCare and escalate to talk to a Sr. Adviser. Then ask the Sr. Advisor to report the issues to Apple Engineering. This is a better way to get your issues resolved.

    Exactly, thats why I despair at problems like this, those guys have no idea.

    Good idea, however I don't have AppleCare on this computer. I think I will get it however.

    I do have a developer account and they're fairly responsive through that, but that's more for general bugs.

    I have one idea, I do have some software which is causing process exhaustion on the computer after sleep. That could be causing the problem ... the kernel might panic when it runs out of max PID's. I'll disable the software completely and see if occurs again.
