    What PowerBook model do you have? I have a 1.25 Ghz 15 inch model, and sometimes when I open it, the screen flashes on, then goes off. I can still hear it working, I just can't get the screen to turn on. It really sucks when I have unsaved documents open! :mad:

    My 15" TiBook does the same thing; it's not a problem. This is why it's supposed to do that:

    It comes on and you see the screen - however, this is just the screen that was there before you put it to sleep. Although, while it was asleep the screen probably hasn't changed, the screen refreshes. And so, there is black, then the blank screen (blue) is applied, and then the updated frame.

    Yes, it could be handled better, but it's not a serious problem of any sort.
