(Yet more) sleep/wake issues

MacBook Pro - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I'm on my third 15" MacBook Pro since placing my order in late April. The first had cosmetic issues, the second had a defective Touch Bar, and now this one won't wake after sleeping more than a minute.

The keyboard illuminates, but the screen stays blank. Holding the power button to shut down is the only option.

I've tried:

- SMC resets

- NVRAM resets

- Completely erasing the disk and re-installing macOS via Internet Recovery

- macOS 10.12.6 beta

- Running the Apple Diagnostic Test - no issues found

The issue persists on a totally clean macOS install (and before logging in, and in Guest User mode) so it isn't any third party software causing an issue.

BUT

In Recovery Mode, i.e. the cut-down environment for accessing Disk Utility etc., sleep/wake works just fine.

So it must be software, right?

Anything else I can do? It's like something needs wiping and reinstalling at deeper down than the OS level.
