    Did it start doing it immediately after the update or did it take a while? I just updated mine today and it's been working fine so far.

    Specs:
    MacBook 2.0GHz White, 512MB RAM, 60GB HDD
    That issue only affects the Macbook; this is the Macbook Pro. The only widespread issue that MBP has had (to my knowledge) is randomly shutting down due to a faulty battery. A recall was in place some time ago.

    How old is the machine? It's probably worth calling AppleCare to see if there is any information on problems in this area.
