    Help? Screen Problems
    When I open my computer, the screen is at its normal brightness for about 30 seconds. Then, it turns to a darkness where I can hardly see anything on the screen. Does anyone know what this means or how to fix it?

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    Sounds like the ambient light sensor is adjusting the brightness for you. If you don't like the feature, you can disable it in Apple menu => System Preferences => Display => Display tab => Uncheck "Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes".
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
