  • MacBook Pro 15" Core Duo Model A1150 Optical Drive Replacement

    After installing an SSD instead of the optical drive, installing Mac OS on it (the SSD) and then booting from the SSD, I can't get the computer to enter sleep mode. When I had the SSD connected (with the same OS installation) to an external USB port I had no trouble putting the beast to sleep (when booting from it)! Any suggestions? Obviously the SSD is now attached via (S)ATA instead of USB. Does it matter?

    If I boot from the "original" SATA hard disk sleep mode works fine with the SSD installed (both via USB and in the optical bay)...
