My Problem

My Mac would not go to sleep when I closed the lid. In fact it would get really busy and overheat. Disk access also got really flakey.

My Problem

Tried to update my late 2011 Macbook to a Solid State and of course, got that cursed blinking folder! Crucial told me it was 99% the hard drive cable, they see it a lot in the 2011 MacBooks.
