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
