I keep several user accounts active on my macbook, one for general use, one for running my recording software etc.

Sometimes, when switching from my Logic/audio account to my main account using the fast switching in the top right, the colour setup on the monitor goes's like the monitor's suddenly been recalibrated so everything has a blue tint to it. I have to reboot OS X to reset the colours to normal.

A minor niggle, but one I thought I'd share. Anybody else had this problem and managed to solve it? It never happens at any other time, and I don't have any calibration or colour settings different on the other account than on my normal one. Thanks for any info.

That really seems like a weird issue (like I'm sure you didn't know that already lol). If you do not get any responses on here maybe check the apple site. Or, worse comes to worse, re-install the OS. To me, it doesn't sound like a hardware issue because if it was it should happen all the time. Have you tried setting the color settings for each user? Maybe, somehow, the color settings for each user got jacked up or something??? Let us know what happens!
