    So, i put my 2007 C2D 17" MBP to sleep at night, 99% of the time for the last 2 weeks it won't wake up to be able to use. I have it PW protected on wake up. I tap the power button and get the input box, type it in, it flashes, the cursor stays around - i can hear mail downloading - but the screen is black.

    The only option so far i've found out of it is to hard reboot it.

    During the day when it falls asleep it wakes up just fine - so it seems like it is a long sleep that does it, if i had to put a time frame on it i'd say anything over 3 hours. And it doesn't seem to matter if i select sleep from the apple menu, or if it goes on it's on. of course, it never fails, it does it always when i need the 5 websites i left up on the screen.

    I'm not sure what direction to take.... suggestions

    Strange issue. Do you have any peripherals plugged in? Maybe try resetting the SMC as a start. :)
