    I've been having an issue recently where after my MacBook (5,1 Alu. 2.4Ghz) is woken from sleep, displays (both MacBook + external) will not come on. However, the keyboard backlighting comes on and the sleep indicator changes its flash. The only option I am faced with is to shutdown the computer by holding the power button. Upon start up, "Problem Report for Mac OS X" comes up specifying that a panic has occurred:

    Interval Since Last Panic Report: 207534 sec
    Panics Since Last Report: 1

    I recently reinstalled Snow Leopard but I was also having this issue prior to reinstallation. It started happening about a month ago. Any thoughts?

    :(

    Called AppleCare and the representative guided me through a safe boot only to restart the computer. When there was no kernel panic she said that the problem was fixed. *sigh*

    It comes with every macbook, it's the disk 2 grey dvd (the same dvd that has ilife in in). You can also try to reset the nvram and the smc controler

    Ok, just ran a quick test and nothing was found. I can do the more extensive test later on tonight. I've reset the nvram, but forgot about the smc. Thank you. :)

    EDIT: just reset it. I'll see if the problem persists.

    Nope, I just got the problem tonight. I unplugged my MacBook along with its peripherals (external display, iPhone, audio, and mouse) and then closed the lid to take it downstairs.

    After sitting down I opened the lid to see that the display was off - this time no backlight on the keyboard or sleep indicator. One press of the power button did not turn the computer on. I had to hold it for about ten seconds for it to boot up, upon which time I was presented with another kernel panic error.
    :mad:

    Just to sum it up:

    • The representative's solution did not work.
    • Resetting the PRAM did not work.
    • Resetting SMC did not work.
    • Repairing disk permissions did not work.
    • Reinstalling Snow Leopard did not work.
    • Apple's hardware test turned up no errors (both basic and complete).

    I am out of ideas.
