    I did not have any issue for 2 weeks, then i added 8Gig memory, Additional HardDisk and I started getting reboot on wakeup.

    I did a PRAM reset and its been ok for 2 days in a row. Fingers cross.

    +500 gig seagate
    (i forget the specific models)

    stock ram
    + 2X2 from OWC

    there was also some other fan related weirdness that i think i'll put down in the other thread dealing with these issues...

    (maybe they could be merged or something?)

    Not sure about the fan thing, but I wonder if all the people with the sleep problem also had addtional RAM from OWC...

    yeah, i have no real knowledge to base this on, but wouldn't seem pretty weird for this sort of issue to be due to 3rd party memory?

    I have 10GB of RAM - 2 from Apple and 8 from OWC (4x2GB).

    Never had the reset on wake issue in two weeks of use.

    I'm the same as above. Happened twice before I called Apple tech, was told to repair the disk permissions which I did, it happened once more, before I turned off the sleep function. I was tired of loosing work after going out to lunch.

    Mine has started to do this. I have 2x750gb seagates in raid 0 and 2xWD1tb greens in raid 1, plus 10gb owc ram 4x2gb+2x1gb. Its really pissin me off.

    Also, sometimes on boot the system won't recognized my mouse or keyboard and I have had tons of crashes of ichat while doing video chatting.

    So what is the consesus? Do I need to take my mac back to apple????

    Mine was doing it before I added the additional OWC RAM - I think it actually does it less now. My drives are 3 x WD 750GBs + stock 320. RAM is 4 x 2GB OWC.

    I take my "Never" vote back... my MP 8800GT (see sig) just did it after a full night sleep. It can handle a 30 min sleep ok, but not one overnight.

    Other than that... the machine is in great condition.

    So what is Apple saying? Live with it?

    I'm suprised no one's posted here about what Apple recommends to fix this problem. Are they saying "turn off sleep"? Seems odd that there's not a solution to this.

    I think they're still trying to figure out what's going on with it. In the Apple forums, many figured it out by resetting the PRAM and SMC, but since 10.5.2, it's all come back again to them. So evidently... it very well be software... and if that indeed is the case... another update should roll out with it. Keyword: should.

    To add to ErikAndre's post, at least in my case PRAM/SMC reset worked again after the 10.5.2 update apparently brought back the reboot on wake problem.

    Agree that this points to a software/firmware issue.

    Caveat...at least some users are reporting that the problem comes back eventually.

    Anyone know what could cause PRAM and/or SMC to become changed/corrupted in the first place?

    I don't know. Will have to be a firmware update instead of software. None of my other computers are having problems and they have all the same software on them. Try doing a video chat. Constant freezes. Also usb not responsive on boot sometimes. Pretty messed up. REV A baby.

    Well took my mac pro back to the apple store. Had it over 3 weeks and they promptly refunded my money. They knew about the issue. No need to explain. Guy said they thought it would get fixed with 10.5.2. Said all the mac pros are doing this.

    Take it back and wait. That is what I am doing. Got 8gb or OWC ram for sale and an unopened applecare protection plan for sale if interested.
