Apple released a patch yesterday designed to fix unspecificed problerms with the system management controller (SMC) which oversees many of the notebooks’ functions. Apple declined to explain the problems in detail, saying only that the new patch would ‘improve the stability’ of effected systems.

An earlier firmware update addressed problems with the new MacBooks’ new glass trackpad controller.
