    There is no question in my mind that this is a hardware issue. My old G4 iMac exhibits the same symptoms, and I have tried every OS under the sun on it. All of them do it. You could Archive and Install OS X from your MBP discs, but I doubt that would do any good. I personally would call Apple, this is most likely out of the scope of what we can help you with here.

    I'm having the same problem. Are you using a screensaver? Have you added memory? My problems seem to have started recently and the only change is that I added memory after Christmas. It also seems to be happening when after a period of dormancy or overnight.
