I was wondering whether someone is experiencing the same issues I am.


I have upgraded my April 2010 MBP 15" i7 to Lion yesterday, and without fail every time I put the laptop to sleep (with or without applications open) it does the following:


- appears to go to sleep.

- on wake the screen remains black and the laptop unresponsive, however something is running and it gets extemely hot.

- a hard kill (holding power button for a few seconds) and restart (pressing power button to turn on) send it into resume mode (white background, segmented progress bar at the bottom).

- about halfway into the progress bar filling up, sometimes earlier, the resume freezes.

- it stalls for a bit, then a kernel panic screen appears.

- another hard kill and restart and the laptop boots normally.


My laptop has not woken from sleep properly even once since I installed Lion. This is untenable, especially considering the overheating (I just almost burnt my hand pulling the laptop out of my backpack and couldn't touch it for about 5 minutes after shutting it down - that's the extent of overheating). It's only by chance that the hardware isn't utterly fried yet.


The machine had no such problems on Snow Leopard, and any prior freezes have been singular events that I couldn't reproduce.


Is this a problem that Apple is aware of? Does anyone experience similar issues?


Thank you!
