mbp not waking up
sometimes my mbp doesn't wake up after i have been away from it,sometimes only for a few minutes,i touch a key or press the power button and nothing happens,i have to connect it to the mains to wake it up,its only intermittent but very annoying,has anyone else had this or know if its something that needs attention?

It's not a problem I've had with my MBP, but it would seem that others have. A quick Google search threw up quite a few related issues. I've not trolled through them all, and unfortunately there are numerous ideas as to why it happens

its in two parts,hold down cmd,alt and shift for 15 secs then let go,2nd parts a bit tricky,with one hand hold down cmd,alt and R key,then turn on power,immediately you press power let go and hold down P key,you should get 2 or 3 chimes then as it fires up again,let me know how it goes.

as it was a two part thing maybe the first one was the cleaning bit.
