    int he past when i would have the computer go to sleep the screen would go black almost immediately.

    recently its been taking as long as 15 seconds to go black, i only have firefox operating..

    sound like a software or hardware issue?

    how do i fix this , is anyone else having this problem?

    I've had this always. I think it's normal, but I could be wrong. If you find a fix let me know :rolleyes:

    Edit: It takes mine about 17 seconds to go to sleep, but waking it is almost instant.

    I don't have it anymore since update 2.0. I had to reset the SMC as well. Before it used to take up to 20 seconds to sleep and 30 to exit from it. Now it takes about 3-4 seconds to enter sleep mode (e.g. using :apple: menu) and the same time to exit it. So, one more problem solved. :)

    Why using the menu and not closing the lid that makes the laptop go to sleep?

    Well, that works too. I was just stating an example of how I tested it. I tried to reproduce the old behavior many times without success. I simply didn't want to open and shut the lid 30 times in a row. :D
