    Is this normal?? A need to reset the SMC after upgrading the RAM? I am on Lion, and after upgrading to 8 GB RAM, I started having the sleep/wake issues where it would not wake after I opened the lid. I reset the SMC and now it seems fine.... hasn't happened again?

    Perfectly normal for any change in hardware.

    You did change the hardware so the system could have gotten a little confused and started having issues. A reset would force it to recognize the new RAM and adapt accordingly, perfectly normal
