Currently Being ModeratedMay 9, 2009 7:28 AM (in response to TomSeattle)Hi, Tom. I don't recall that anyone at all has reported this particular freezing problem here before. If I were you, I'd make a Genius Bar appointment at an Apple store, demonstrate the problem to the Genius, and see what he or she has to say about it. It is clearly not normal behavior for a MBP, and I question your assumption that it is caused by a static discharge, if you never feel one occurring. If you pursue this, please post back and let us know how it goes.15" MBP unibody 2.4GHz/4G/250G; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; PTProG3 500MHz/768M/160G, Mac OS X (10.5.6), film and flatbed scanners, projector, graphics tablet, laser and photo printers

Thanks for the reply.
Not feeling a static discharge simply means it is below the threshold, it doesn't mean there wasn't a discharge.
I'm pretty certain of this as I developed the theory, then watched it happen, like clockwork, at least 5x since. And as I said, it is 100% repeatable. I'd be happy to demonstrate this to Apple, but I barely have enough time in my day to endure the restarts, or to call applecare,,,,, certainly not enough time to go to the Genius bar to demonstrate this. And they probably have some kind of antistatic carpet there.... However if a Genius was interested enough to stop by my office I'd gladly demonstrate it.
..... jut trying to help folks narrow down a freeze problem. I was pretty happy to find mine, and not have to call applecare again.
