me too

I have just purchased a brand new MBP and have a very similar problem...

MBP 15" 2.16
1. black screen after sleeping...
2. when booting up, the first boot fails to illuminate the screen. I power down and restart - everything's fine.

hmmph.

This behaviour is consistent so far. If the MBP is off for a while - half an hour or more - the screen will not illuminate on the first boot. I hear the Apple chime but I can't tell whether the computer actually boots up or not. I hold the power button down to shut it down. Restart. On the second boot sometimes I get the grey screen with th Apple logo - sometimes it stays black until the log-in page.

Not nice.

Follow up:

called Applecare, tried a few resets etc. but nothing seemed to fix it. Applecare advised me to return it to the dealer and swap for a new one if the problem persisted.

Took it back to Carbon Computers, they tested it and verified the problem... and kindly swapped it for a new MBP immediately. No problems with the new MBP. Thanks Carbon!
