Avoid Kernel Panics upon waking MacBook
Authored by: jdb8167 on Jan 22, '09 05:46:58PM

I had frequent kernel panics and freezes on wake when I first bought the new unibody MacBook. But they stopped with Apple's release of a firmware update. Make sure you have the latest MacBook Firmware. Go to System Profiler, option-apple:

Boot ROM Version: MB51.0073.B06
SMC Version: 1.32f8

This is for a 2.4 GHz MacBook. I don't know if the versions are different for the 2.0 GHz version.
