ML Fresh Install: Screen color change with gfc card switching

I did a clean install on Mountain Lion on my macbook pro, now whenever I open up an application that uses the discrete graphics card the screen changes colors slighly. Anyone else having this issue.

Having the same issue, namely with Parallels and Aperture. Anyone know how to solve this?

Im also having this issue, im not using gfx card status.. Just by going to system preference then Energy Save, when I click the automatic graphics switching the color profile changes also.. when i go to Display then color settings theres no other profiles to change to. When im on integrated it shows all profiles

Looks like this was an over sight on Apple's part... I hope this is addressed with an update soon!

Unhappy (Video) Same Experience

I captured the effect on my phone.

I'm having the same problems, and I've been using gfxCardStatus to try and see if I can prevent it. Seems like that program is very unstable on Mountain Lion as well. Apple better get on this, as Chrome is a lot more painful to use.

This has solved the problem for me (at least for now). Going to reboot to see if it holds up.

EDIT: It solved, now the color profile remains the same.

EDIT 2: It's back again. I've read in the Apple Discussions that this is a problem for people with SSDs. But it seems that if you boot with the discrete graphics it goes away for some time.

Yep I'm having the same troubles when opening Photoshop- the screen colour profile changes to a blue tinge (like 9300 in the display calibrator menu) rather than the natural screen colour, makes it hard to work on some graphics I've got going at the moment! Hope they sort this out soon...

restart

I tried restarting my MacBook and opening PS from the applications folder and it seems to have worked - Photoshop back to normal at least for the moment...

the gfxcardstatus fix does work (thanks to Cody Krieger) - I really hope they release an update for this soon, the community seems to be quite on top of this one : )

Monitor profiling (ColorSync) is currently broken in 10.8. The reason why you're seeing a slight shift in colouring has to do with a whole bunch of other problems people have been having.

They don't seem to care about the issue enough to fix it in 10.8.1, so you'll probably have to wait until 10.8.2 to get it fixed. The only solution at the moment is to disable graphics card switching.

I just started getting this problem when I updated to 10.8.2 Dev Build.

UPDATE: Reseting the PRAM fixed my issue it seems.

I have the same problem when my macbook pro mid2010 17inch with an Agility 3 ssd, is using the gfx card.
At first I thought that it is a new feature, but after reading this thread, I realized that this is a bug.

(I am using ML 10.8.1 - clean install)

Lightbulb The Fix

gfxCardStatus lets you override the system and stay on the integrated GPU, but that sucks.

The fix, amazingly, is to log out and back in. Then you can switch GPU's and the color shift is gone.
