One reason I’m looking forward to Leopard is that unfortunately I’m a victim of the bug where my MacBook Pro 17″ occasionally reboots when I close the lid. Most of the time things are OK, but once a month or so I close the lid and I hear the “bong” chime of the computer restarting. When I open it back up (either right away or after a while) it starts back up as if I’d powered it on. Needless to say I lose any unsaved work, which has caused me to be even more annoyed at software that does no auto-save such as TextMate. It seems to happen in clusters, a few times in a few days, then fine again for another few weeks or so. Anyway here’s hoping Apple has a handle on this one either in Leopard, or in the hardware update to the MBP line that came out a couple of months ago. I’m provisionally happy enough with mine that I’m irrationally eyeing the 1920×1600 and 4GB RAM options in the latest (though the high res is apparently not available with the glossy screen. What’s up with that?).
Anyway, other references to the closed lid reboot bug:
Update: s/Tiger/Leopard/g. Can’t keep the big cats straight.
