Are you using what some deem to be the sweetest computing machine ever created, the MacBook Pro from Apple? Well, life is not always peaches and cream, and some MacBook Pro owners do experience glitches from time to time – the latest being the computer itself shutting down randomly for no apparent reason at all. As usual, things like this are not supposed to happen, but Apple has just released the MacBook Pro Firmware Update 1.5 which could potentially resolve this particularly irritating issue. Check out what Apple says about it below.
This update resolves an issue where a MacBook Pro being used with a power adapter may unexpectedly shut down under heavy workload if the battery charge level is near empty.
Your computer’s power cord must be connected and plugged into a working power source, or your battery must be at least 25% charged.
When your computer restarts a gray screen will appear with a status bar to indicate the progress of the update.
Your computer’s fans will run at full speed during the update but will return to normal speed once the update completes.
Do not disturb or shut off the power on your computer during this update.
Bear in mind that you need to run at least Mac OS X 10.6.8 on your MacBook Pro before running this firmware update.
