    I called Apple explained greyish/white screen would not respond to enter etc. or shut down.

    Apple said: Finder, Go, Utilities, Disk Utilities, Click on Drive, First Aid, Verify Disk, etc.

    and this was ok. Next option either send in or go to Apple Store and make appt

    However, I have read article which says there is a fix on the way. In term is to call " Open and close lid after this happens ; the problem is it seems to go to sleep and not want to wake up with key strokes.

    I have the same problem, it has happened a few times since I bought it in December. The screen goes grey and it is seemingly unresponsive (closing and opening lid makes no difference). I have discovered I can still ssh to it and do a shutdown, at least it goes down cleanly, previously I would also just hold the power button to turn it off.

    Has anyone found a better solution or maybe handed it in to Apple support?

    Regards,
    Claudio

    Don't necro threads like that, people will try to help the OP without realising this is a over 6 months old thread, post a new one if you have a question that can you can't find the answer for with the search function. Basic forum etiquette.


    The better solution is to take it in for warranty work.
