When my macbook running SL wakes from sleep with an external display attached, i get two flashing blue screens that last about 5 seconds total before I can start to use the computer. This would be understandable if I had attached the external while the macbook was asleep, but that is not the case. This isn't a problem, but is rather annoying. Does anyone know how to fix this?

QUOTE Thanks
