    SR MBP Wakes immediately after being put to sleep
    Background:
    -------------------------------------------------------
    I've recently been experiencing consistent random sleep failures with my Santa Rosa Macbook Pro. Whether I sleep via the apple menu, or close the lid, the MBP goes through its sleep procedure, then the split second that the MBP latch light begins to breathe, the DVD-drives makes its 'wake up' sound and the MBP powers back on.

    Initially I thought my problem was related to an application. Firefox and MSN messenger seemed to consistently cause the problem. Then I found that it can still occur with neither open. It 'seems' that if I turn off my airport immediately prior to sleeping, the MBP will sleep without problems. Sometimes if I turn it off, then immediately turn it back on and sleep, the MBP will sleep okay. This doesn't seem to work consistently.

    I had also thought this might have something to do with my airdisk since it's been suffering the (well-documented at this point) problem where airdisks start giving "Unknown user, login [...]" errors. This doesn't seem to be the case though since the problem still occurs if I disable the airdisk agent and don't mount any drives.

    NOTE: This doesn't seem to happen with my GF's MBP. It too is a 2.2GHz Santa Rosa machine on the same AEBS network.


    System Details:
    -------------------------------------------------------
    - Santa Rosa 2.2Ghz Stock Macbook Pro
    - OSX 10.4.10, all updates installed including airport updates
    - Gigabit Airport Extreme with Seagate FreeAgent Pro Airdisk attached via USB


    Observations:
    -------------------------------------------------------
    In my logs below, it seems that a successful sleep does NOT show the following lines in the system log. This might be related to having turned off the airport in order to get a successful sleep:

    System Log when there is a SUCCESSFUL sleep:
    (I had to turn off the airport to get this to work, so that might bias some things)

    Specs:
    MBP 2.4 SR 15.4" LED LCD, 160G
    This may have nothing to do with your problem, but someone with similar problem traced it to either a wireless mouse of a bluetooth mouse. Turn them off first before you try to go to sleep should fix it.
    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Yep I had thought it might be my external mouse/keyboard and/or my external LCD, so I immediately unplugged them both to rule them out. The problem persists regardless, with nothing at all plugged in.

    Also, this happens both on battery and when on AC, and PMU and PRAM resets did nothing to fix the problem.

    My only other suggestion is to bring it to Apple store if you have one nearby. Maybe it's simply defective and you'll get replacement.

    Unfortunately, there are no Apple stores in Ottawa, Canada. Closest one is Toronto. There is a shop with an authorized apple technician, but last time I had my laptop in there for 3 weeks while I waited for a new topcase due to a wonky touchpad button. I wonder if the new topcase caused this some how...

    I've been having the same problem, and I think I may have solved it.
    I accidentally (or by default) had Bluetooth selected under Network Port Configurations. I unchecked it, and since then I'm sleeping a lot better!
