    Okay, I've been having some strange power issues lately, and I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing them.

    When I close the screen, 60 or 70 percent of the time it goes to sleep. Other times, it goes to sleep for a split second, then comes back to life. I can tell becasue the DVD drive spins up, and I hear the sound it makes when iChat connects. About 5% of the time, it shuts down completely, even when the battery is full.

    Strange, huh?

    take it in, there were some that had an expanding heat sink causing an electrical ground to act funny (it would graze the ground wire and make a contact). gf's macbook went in for this and they took it in back and did the repair right in-store :cool:
