thanks. obviously i'd like to avoid such a time-intensive move before looking at other options.
To make things more intresting I've fund it ONLY does it when plugged into a charger.
AND if I briefly unplug the charger after the screen comes up black it immediately wakes up and stays on.
I've reset the SMC. But still get the same issue (if plugged in).

I am having the exact same problem. with an Early 2011 MBP with high res display and SSD option. I'm running Lion and starting about 2 weeks ago, if I shut the lid, and try and wake it up, the keyboard lights up, and the display comes on for about 3 seconds and nothing. I tried messing with the function keys as stated in the thread above and that appears to work occasionally. I haven't been able to test whether this is only a problem while plugging into the charger.
Running OSX 10.7.3 build 11D50d

I am having the exact same problem. Just seemed to start a couple weeks ago.
Purchased MacBook Pro 15-inch, Late 2011edition in February of 2012. 2.5 Ghz Intel Core 17, 8GB/Memory 13333 MHz DDR3 / AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1024 MB/ Running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b). Only utilizing about 25 percent of storage capacity.
Seems to resolve when I unplug it, but would like a permanent fix.I have checked for updates and am completely up to date.

Same problem started around April, 27, 2012; when waking from sleep, they keyboard lights up but the screen doens't come on. Forced reboot is only option?

I am not sure what actually worked for me.
But I will like to point some observations
I thnk I downloaded some app which did not sleep on closing the MBP's lid
In that case on opening thelaptop creater the error.
I uninstalled all small, less popular apps and I was able to resolve the issue

Still no fix to this problem. I can unplug it and it will wake up, but for the price I don't think I should have to do that. It's like push starting a Mazeratti. Not cool.

Hi there I have been having the same problem. It seemed to start last week outta of the blue and I have done SMC and everything I can think of and I have done a clean install before and it still happened after the clean install. Wish there was a fix
