    I think my Macbook pro is going to sleep and it was coming out of sleep fine with the Thunderbolt display up until a couple weeks ago, now when I leave the machine on overnight, it sleeps and when it wakes up the only way to get the Thunderbolt display back is to reboot, or unplug it and plug it back in.

    It also says drive wasn't ejected properly because my firewire backup is plugged into the Thunderbolt Monitor.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Saw an issue related to the EFI update might have reset my "Automatically adjust brightness" on the Thunderbolt display which is a known issue with waking up apparently. Will check that when I get home tonight.

    I've had this issue too. Since I updated MBP firmware I've had no issues, until I woke up today. The TBD wouldn't wake up with the computer. I had to unplug and plug it back in to get it to wake up.

    Not a big issue for me except for the fact that all the windows gets messed up. I was hoping that the last update fixed it, but now I probably need to realize that I've just been lucky.

    My TBD and its connected wired keyboard won't wake up my Macbook Pro after a couple weeks of useage. Only way to fix it is to restart the computer.

    As an aside, this might not be thunderbolt display related, as the computer won't wake up when clicking my bluetooth magic mouse either. Could be an OS or firmware bug that just causes the TBD to not wake up either.

    Is Apple releasing a patch to fix this issue?

    No idea mate... I don't work at Apple, and if I did, they'd probably fire me for talking about work stuff here. ;)

    As a slightly annoying workaround, just do a weekly restart of the computer, for example after installing software updates (which is mandated anyway sometimes.) This should make the not-waking-up-from-sleep issue not present itself; it works for me from what I can tell. YMMV, of course...

    Bloody Macs

    £860 for a machine that turns your monitor off every twenty minutes so you have to reboot that machine whenever you want to do anything. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Bloody Macs! That's all I have to say.
