Ive had my white 2.0gHz Macbook since last October, for about a month now it will always randomly shutdown/crash and need a complete reboot (holding the power button down until it flashes and beebs) after each time I close and open the book itself. Usually about 2-3 mins after I flip the monitor up.

Ive tried the latest software/system upgrades hoping to fix the problem but to no avail.

Is there something I can do to fix this eternally frustrating problem or is it going to have to go back to the dealer for a service, I wanted to avoid this as I need my macbook everyday for university.

Is this a common problem? Is anyone else dealing with this?
QUOTE Thanks
