I had the same problem. Nothing fixed it. Update 2.0 seems to be bad - I can't believe Apple released it like this.
The only thing I had left to do was restore from a Time Machine backup. I'm now back to just before Update 2.0 was applied, and everything is working again.

I tried restoring from TimeMachine however it is not wokring for me; I think this was a firmware update and it's not possible to roll these back.
I am very upset because my laptop is basically useless now, and I don't live next to an Apple Store so sending this thing though the mail is a pian in the butt and costly.
SO MAD !

You can't roll back firmware. Try an SMC reset it seems to be a temporary fix and then the system will have problems again randomly. Just have to wait for Apple to release a fix.

That also failed mate, I went though that on the phone with Apple a few minutes ago.

Yes as I mentioned in the first post, I did try that.
Apple told me I would have to ship the computer on my dime ( for the second time ) because they do not offer shipping exchange in Canada.
This is the second time I will have to pay the shipping cost for repairs on this laptop; it basically will have added $125 to the price.
Probably will be my last Mac.

Before sending it in I would make sure you try everything. I would boot to recovery and erase the drive and do a fresh install of Mountain Lion and see if that fixes your issue before forking out that much cash.

Thanks, I have not tried to use internet recovery yet.
I'll give it a shot.

Also look here, maybe something in this discussion will help.

It wasn't a firmware update. It was just software.
You can successfully go back by installing a backup from before the update. I've done it here. Booted to recovery drive, and then restored from Time Machine. It took out half a day while I waited for the restore to complete, but I'm now back and everything has been working all week without issue.
I have not attempted to reinstall Update 2.0 - clearly it has a major problem with some hardware. Why has Apple not pulled this yet?
