    In short, my SR MBP will never go to sleep. It will shut down for about 1 second then start back up again when set to sleep under the Energy Saver settings.

    I've noticed when I turn off the Airport it seems to sleep fine.

    I've brought it to a Mac store twice where they've reinstalled OS X, and replaced the logic board. Still, the thing doesn't want to sleep. It even will wake up when I close the lid, then freeze when I re-open it.

    Anyone, PLEASE, what the heck is going on with my 1 month old computer?????

    are you using any external peripherals, i.e bluetooth mouse, keyboard etc... which may be waking the machine up.

    Sounds like it could be a faulty reed switch. Did anybody at Apple mention this?

    Actually, yes, I contacted AppleCare (4th time), and I'm sending it in to get the reed switch replaced. I guess it could help, but I have a feeling it has something to do with Airport -- since everything works when I shut it off. I guess we'll see.

    If that doesn't work, you may want to try emailing sjobs@apple.com, and ask for a new one. Although Steve himself won't answer, many people have done the same thing with alot of success when Applecare won't fix there problem. Worth a try at least.

    There was a thread about this several days ago and I think the solution was something about resetting pram? or pvram? It just involved holding down a few keys on startup... you might want to look for that thread.

    On a MacBook Pro that would be a SMC reset.

    If you have to bring it in a third time demand a new one on the spot.
