Beyond filevalt, macbook(pro)s also have a pretty bad track record of
trashing drives (after the intel changeover mac sleep writes RAM to disk
before the drive spins down -- and before many users put their laptops in
bags and start walking). This trashed drive can present as random long io
blocking for weeks or months before the drive fails.
an old thread about the issue.
http://www.macworld.com/article/53471/2006/10/sleepmode.html is the fix I
run my macs with -- one caveat is that if the computer runs completely out
of battery it in effect does a hard boot. The other option is to wait (up
to 2 minutes) for RAM to write to disk and the sleep light to slow blink
before moving your lappy; I am just too impatient.
