Hi folks,
I've performed a forum search so I hope I'm not asking an old question.

I purchased a wireless Mighty Mouse today (my Christmas present to me) for my new MacBook. Since installing my mouse, the MacBook doesn't go to sleep, it quietly shuts itself down - even when I'm waiting for a long task or large download to complete.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so, is there a solution? :confused:

Many thanks

Install MenuMeters, check if you're machine isn't using a lot of CPU time all the time, as maybe, somehow, something is causing the some kind of overheating problem which makes your machine shut down.

There's a SMC firmware update for the Macbook which solves some shutdown problems. Otherwise, I'm guessing a trip back to Apple will be required eventually.
