MacBook Random Shutdown Problem Solved!

DISCLAIMER: AtAT2 reminds our readers that many first-generation products have issues, even snazzy expensive Apple crap. For example, Ferrari has a new $250,000 car that's randomly catching on fire. Don't read into these MacBooks having problems and start predicting Apple being bought by Dell for 99 cents. Good grief.

Unless you've been wearing a Saran-wrap hat, you've probably heard the dirt on Apple's latest MacBook/Pro quality control snag. This time it's with regular MacBooks: they're randomly shutting down. The problem is widespread enough that there's now a web site inventively called that's claiming 374 users affected at this writing. It's enough of an issue that Apple has posted a lengthy knowledge base article discussing it, and instructing customers to take their computers in to get fixed if it happens. There's more juice: AppleInsider claims that Apple is replacing both heatsinks and logic boards to solve the problem and has some sort of triage system in place to handle "business-critical" repairs, so you can get back to doing your business with your MacBook in less time.

Of course, we at AtAT2 know this problem is all a bunch of hooey. After experiencing this problem with our BlackBook, we did the reasonable thing and checked our Energy Saver settings. Sure enough:

We decided to keep it checked, you know, to save power. As for all y'all hysterical MacBook owners, You're Welcome.
