Hello all,

I just recently purchased the new unibody MB. I am not sure this is an issue but its bothersome to me. So bare with me!

the issue seems to be when i test the screensaver and exit, the second that it does, the screen flickers with like 1 millisecond of a flickering screen with a tint of pink or some sort of distortion to the screen. I am not getting this anywhere else besides when i test the screen saver. please help!!!

those that might have the same graphic processor as i do 9400M, might be able to give me a peace of mind. thanks alot guys!!!

Sounds like a bug in Snow Leopard to me, but it could be something else. I would report it to Apple and wait for an update.

But here is a thread I found with a quick Google that might help you.

Apple - Support - Discussions - 9400m Nvidia screen flicker after snow ...

Good luck.
