I took this up with Apple who ran a log gathering app and the resuktresult is that my SMC is faulty, and confirmed as a manufaturermanufacturer fault! So advice is to go a Genius bar and get them to run overnight tests, or in first instance contact Apple and request an escalation to the tech support team.

If you have been having heating problems with the fans running more than you expect, then you may also have a known GPU heat sink problem - Graphics Processor Unit, where the heatsink material was useless and rieddried up so no heat trarnsfertransfer and this would over heat the motherboard, ndand in my experience this could have a detrimental effect on the SMC as well.
