Hello,

Last month, I got myself the base model of the 13" MBA, I really love the machine and came to realize that it is pretty much all I need for daily work (including Lightroom). The only hiccup I have is that sometimes the screen just shuts off and it takes a few keyboard and mouse clicks before it comes back like nothing happened.

It started with Lion and continued with Mountain Lion. It would not be a heat issue or CPU load as it's been doing that when I'm simply browsing, or working on photos or reading e-mails.

The first time it happened I had it on a book that was approximately in the middle of the laptop, so I thought it's pressing too hard (its own weight) and something is shorting out... although it happened a few more times after. Today it happened again and it was simply on the table.

:confused:

Did you check the energy saver settings? It is normally set up to shut off the display after a few minutes.

Yes, that's set to 5mins and 10mins on adapter. Although it happens when I'm doing something, so I'm using the mouse and/or keyboard actively.

Perhaps there is an incompatibility with something you are running. Try checking out your applications at Roaring Apps.
