    Hi,
    ever anybody experieced this:
    After having used the 20 cinema screen for 2 hours work, suddenly the backlight quits; screen dark, content hardly visible.
    I thougt, ok backlight quitted, it's a thing to replace under warranty..
    I opened my PB (which the screen is conectet to) to continue there, then after a few seconds the backlight on the cinema screen started working like normal - kind of loose connection?

    Have you checked all your PowerSaving settings on the PB?
    Likely something there is turning of external display to conserve power?? Just a thought

    May be the backlight had a surge or something.

    Almost impossible, as I've been using the current setting for months and that never happened.
    Until now (another 10 hours of work) the display behaves normal; I hope it continues like that.
