Just updated. Hopefully this will fix the random (not very often) freezes and lack of waking up from sleep when opened (little more often LOL).

Nothing on my Core Duo MacBook, MacBook Pro and iMac. Perhaps it's for newer machines.

I updated my iMac last night but nothing has shown up for the Macbook Pro

Although I've just checked and my Boot Rom is showing a completely different version than those mentioned above.
Boot ROM Version: MBP41.00C1.B03
