    I have an i5 MacBook Pro. Occasionally, I have a problem when waking the machine wherein I am presented with a black screen, and a mouse pointer. I can move the mouse around, but never get the screensaver password dialog. The only solution is to do a "hard" shutdown by holding the power button. Any troubleshooting suggestions? I repair permissions every couple of weeks, but it doesn't seem to have helped with this issue.

    I've had this issue in the past. Updating to the latest combo update fixes it.
