Default Machine crashes when I close the lid - 03-04-2010, 05:43 PM

I have 10.6.2 installed on my brand new Dell Mini 10v. It seems to be working quite well so far except that the machine crashes every time it goes to sleep... This is difficult only in that every time I close the lid, the machine goes to sleep --- and then won't wake up when I lift the lid again. Thanks for help!

If you installed the old mirror friendly kext when you ran NBI, I would run it again and disable it. It causes weird issues like this.
