I have a 2010 11īMBA. Every time I open it from sleep, the screen goes on, then it goes off for a few seconds, then it goes on again, and everything runs fine. Is that normal? Iīm not sure, but when it was new, i did not noticed...
It came with SL and now with Lion, no difference.

EDIT: Repairing permissions did the trick. Now it does not happens anymore.
EDIT 2: itīs happening again!!

It is happening again... after repairing permissions twice. It just stopped for one day.

I've had the 2010 for nearly a year now and never experienced that. It is most definitely not a normal occurrence.

Very weird. It happens most of the time, but not always. Everything else runs fine. Do I have to worry?

i know this is old, but in case someone else is having the same issue... looks like resetting the SMC did the trick. :)
