    Ever since I got rid of my old MBP and picked up the unibody I've been having problems left and right...

    -Speaker sucks... it crackles alot... (the sound of people logging on and off on adium is horrible... sounds like someone took my speakers and poked a hole in them) Should I just bring it in and ask to get it replaced?

    -Whenever I shut down the laptop and close the lid... it doesn't really shut down.. it turns on and off none stop and basically drains all the battery/overheats...

    -Every time I plug in a USB drive/harddrive the screen slowly gets grey and it says I have to turn off and restart the laptop... Laptop pretty much freezes after this....

    Should I just reformat to try to fix the last two problems? Or does the speaker warrant me bringing it into the apple store and possibly getting a new mbp and letting them deal with all the bs?

    Thanks

    you need to let the laptop actually shut down before closing the lid

    closing the lid, even if you started to shut down, will put it to sleep

    I'd definitely have it replaced if I had those issues.
