I have this MacBook for quite a while now. It's been working just fine with the exception of sleep/wake-up issues. Sometimes there's no problem at all, but occasionally it does not.
For instance, I woke up the machine after it slept all night. Everything seemed to work for a while (~1m). I had an external monitor plugged in - shortly after unplugging it (but not immediately, ~30s), the main screen's video gets scrambled followed by an automatic restart.
Update: What factors might contribute to this problem? I put the computer at the capable hands of my Apple Premium Reseller and came back empty handed not once but twice thus far as they have been unable to reproduce this problem.
Now, I know I'm not dreaming this problem and have videos to show exactly what happens. What other factors might play into this problem?

I tried using gfxCardStatus to switch to the integrated Intel and it seems to run smoothly. Conversely, I tried running it with the nvidia and looks stable right now. It's a bit difficult to reproduce this crash as it doesn't happen consistently. I already attempted to reset power management (Cmd-Opt-Shift power button).
What should I do next?
