    Hello good mac people!


    i have a question about some funny behavior on my new macbook...


    when i come home and hook the macbook up to my external monitor and then try to wake up the computer using my apple bluetooth mouse, nothing works.

    i repair the mouse and the keyboard to the computer, and then i can wake it up, but even then the monitor resolution is to the laptop's monitor and not the external monitor. this continues for about a minute, the display settings suggesting that the resolutions are correct, but the external monitor is obviously not at native resolution. and then the screen goes dark, a few moments pass, and the screen finally changes to the external monitors resolution.



    how can i avoid this?

    why is this happening?

    hmmmm.


    thanks,
    r.

    and it happens again!


    why won't my bluetooth mouse/keyboard wake it up???
    (bluetooth pref pane says it's supposed to)

    why is the resolution incorrect on my external monitor?
    (displays pref pane says it should be)
