Problems Waking Up
Hi Guys,

Recently bought a MacBook Pro (2.5 GHz – 4gig ram OSX 10.5.3) which is my first Mac in about 15yrs.

Despite being largely bullet proof, I’m finding that periodically the screen will not ‘light up’ upon re-starting after being put to sleep. The screen will remain dark though you can make out faint images if you angle the screen correctly. Upon re-booting everything will be fine.

Any thoughts a to how to fix this?

Sounds like you might have a loose backlighting connection. Since it's new, I'd call Apple or take it to an Apple store to get it fixed.
