Other than that, I'm not having any regrets about buying the MacBook.
You might check into the battery recall, I think Apple's involved with it as well as Dell and some other's. Apparently there was a bad batch of batteries and some are spontaneously combusting or just expanding and warping the laptops. People jumped on Apple for this a few weeks ago, when reports were coming out about it, saying the design is too slim and not allowing proper cooling... but now it seems it's not just Apple (with Dell recalling over 4 million batteries), and their design, but is a problem from the battery supplier/manufacturer.
Also, if you're using Boot Camp, I've heard there's some issues with Sleep Mode when booted into Windows, but will be fixed when Leopard is released, if not sooner. You didn't mention you were using Boot Camp, but just incase you were, that could be the issue.
Otherwise, glad to hear you're enjoying it. I'm definitely looking forward to mine. I think I'm going to go with an iMac 20" instead of a MBP. For my use, my laptop's stay plugged in regardless, so the portable computing aspect is not of much use to me. And with the iMac's built into the monitor, all I'd have to carry with me is a mouse and keyboard (which I do with my laptop as it is anyway). Just seems like it will serve my needs better for now.
I still want a MacBook though, since the iMac will serve for work / games, won't need the full on MBP. And the Mac Mini is seriously just too pimp to pass up.
