Screen shuts off randomly - Newest model

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.

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.
