If it's that it's probably a hardware issue.
Hahhhaa! Yeah...that's really funny. Dude...it's BLUE. I can be doing anything at all on the computer, surfing, reading a book, burning a cd...whatever and all of a sudden the screen goes BLUE for about 15-20 seconds, then it comes up to the login screen as if I just booted up. All the apps I had opened are closed.
Let me say this...this NEVER happened until I updated to Snow Leopard. I thought there was a problem with my Macbook, so I bought the Macbook Pro. Just for the record, when I reinstalled the OS for the 3rd time, I didn't install ANY apps at all. All I did was surf using Safari and it still happened. So, I don't think it's an app I've installed...especially since Apple's support pages indicate this is an issue with the OS. Hardware? Not likely since it happens on both computers. Has happened since to me since Snow Leopard came out...just that now it's happening more frequently. Apple itself lists it happening since Leopard, but I never had an issue until Snow Leopard.
There are articles all over the web covering the blue screen issue, even covered by CNET in 2009. And as I mentioned, Apple has support sites detailing how to fix it since installing 10.5.7 and above. Nothings worked and it's just getting out of hand.
Anyway, I've done my share of programming and have had more MACS then most people I know over the last 3 decades. So, I'm not exactly a newbie...just a little background on me.
Not trying to give anyone a hard time here, just trying to get my message across.
Maybe I"ll update to the latest OS and see if that resolves the issue. Just getting frustrated with the whole mess, that's all.
