    Anyone else have this issue? I have the Verizon Novatel v740 ExpressCard EVDO card. When I shut the lid, the card turns off, and the laptop goes to sleep, however a minute or so later the MBP comes back to life and wakes up in clamshell mode. Bluetooth is disabled, so it has to be the EVDO card causing it as when I remove the card it doesn't do it. Anyone able to overcome this? I used to have an ATT ExpressCard on my old macbook pro, and it worked fine, I shut the lid and the card shut off and the laptop slept like normal. Help! :)

    Happens on other 3G cards as well; you need to remove the card before attempting to sleep your computer.

    There's got to be a way around this. I want to be able to just leave the card in
