I've lived with this as long as I care to live with this.  I need a solution, please.  My 17" MacBook Pro will not wake from sleep.  Space key, mouse click, closing lid and re-opening, disconnecting power and reconnecting -- nothing works.  When the display goes to sleep I have no alternative but to force a reboot with the power button.  I can't see how this can be good for my hard drives.  But to set the machine to never sleep will likely damage the display.  I know others have had this problem.  Is there no fix???

 

I believe my firmware is up to date.  I'm running OS 10.6.8.  I recently reinstalled system software and updated everything but the problem persists.

 

Here is my system info:

 

I await your collective wisdom to flow over me.
