Sometimes working in iPhoto or I guess any application really, the top bar blacks out and like "glitches" away...

Im not sure if its a memory thing or why its even doing that?

Anyone have any ideas?

It usually goes away if you click on something else or whatever.

What top bar? The title bar? Do you have a screenshot of this?

It sounds like it could be a graphics issue. What model of Mac do you have? What version of OS X are you using?

I do not have a screen shot. How can I snap one?

That does sound like it.

I have the 13" MBP OCT 2011 release.
And I am on the latest LION.

I bought it off eBay from a trusted, reliable source and everything else seems to be functioning perfectly.

Command-Shift-3 will allow you to take a screenshot. You can also use Command-Shift-4 and then press spacebar when the crosshairs come up to take a picture of a specific window.

Thanks I Know how to do it now.

When it happens again I will snap a picture and show you all. I really don't want to go through the process of returning it and everything.
