    Question Screen gets darker "tint" after restart
    Hey everyone,

    New member here.

    I have a... strange... problem.

    It's not a HUGE issue, because I've found an unorthodox way of fixing it each time, but its still weird and a hassle.

    So...every time I restart or shut down and turn my 2010 MacBook Pro back on, the screen tint gets darker. It's not a huge difference, but its certainly noticable, and it's sometimes hard to see normally darking things.

    The fix I've found is starting up a game, such as GW2 or Starcraft, and then closing it. After that, the screen is back to its normal light state, and will usually stay normal until a restart/shutdown.

    Has anyone come across this issue before, and if so, is there a permanent fix?

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice

    Try resetting the System Management Controller for your MacBook Pro. See the following Apple KB article: LINK
