    Having a problem after installing 10.13.4. When the system comes out of sleep, the display will often (but not always) flicker pretty rapidly in a seemingly random pattern. It won't stop until I close the lid and let it sit for a while, and then reopen it. This is on a 2017 MBP. I've never had this problem before. Without specific evidence, I think this a problem with the .4 update, and is not a hardware issue.

    Anyone else see this problem?

    Same issue, had to restart and haven't been able to repeat the flickering. Maybe a problem with the integrated display driver? Also noticed full-screen videos in safari flickering when using volume controls etc.

    It happened again just now. So, I closed Firefox, and it stopped. No clue if there's a bug in FF someplace, but that seems to have stopped the flickering, at least for now.

    Well, it just happened again, and FF was not active. So, it's not FF. I still don't think it's a hardware bug, either. I am convinced that it's a bug in the new release of 10.13.4. Stinks.

    Another data point... it just happened AGAIN. I found that it will stop if I move the cursor around. But when I release the cursor, it starts up again. I can close FF (and Safari) and that doesn't have an effect. Move the cursor, and as long as I move that, it does. I might need to contact the Genius bar about this one.

    OK, I think this might be the last post on this. I reset the PRAM and that seems to have fixed this. I don't know what the specifics are of what's kept in PRAM, but evidently something in that munged up the display when waking up. I haven't seen this issue for a while now.
