Given there's like 12 seperate discussions on this exact problem, the answer would be yes.

There are several other problems related to waking in addition to the lighted keyboard. One that comes to mind is that the screen brightness drops to like 3 bars upon waking. There are a couple of others I can't recall right now. I think we can only hope that Apple fixes these bugs in future updates.
