    I did a search but could not find anything similar on this forum.

    Since upgrading to 10.6.5 I've been experiencing something strange. Three separate times while trying to load media full screen, the computer will hesitate for a moment then log me out, no warning.

    The first incident occurred when I was loading an embedded flash video. I clicked "full screen" and the comp brought up the first video frame, hung there, then logged out. This happened later with a different video.

    The third incident happened today when I was loading some photos in a slide show in Bridge CS4. The first image came up full screen all scrambled then the comp logged out.

    All incidents have happened while trying to load media fill screen and while being connected to an external display.

    Any thoughts?

    Same thing is happening to me, same computer, it looks like, and with an external display. Something is going on here. Hmmm.

    Yeah, I am currently working on the no flash part. Meanwhile, I wonder if this is a Bridge issue or somehow related:

    Happens with or without an external display.

    Happens with flash videos as well as .m4v videos from iTunes.

    Happens when launching a fullscreen slideshow in Bridge.

    This happened after making a video fullscreen in Quicktime. Probably a 8600m GT issue.

    Had same problem, but reset PRAM and all good

    I have a MacBook Pro 2.4 Ghz Intel core i5, running OS X 10.6.5 and an external 27 inch Apple Cinema display. Every time I went fullscreen on VLC or quicktime, the system logged me out. Found a few threads and this seems to be an issue for a few people on the Apple support forum...

    Basically I reset the PRAM (shut down then press the power button whilst holding the Command, alt and P and R keys till it chimes twice) and she's all good. Try it out, hope it works for you!

    Same problem, more details to share

    July 2007 MBP with 8600m GT. 4GB ram and WD Blue 500GB HD.
    Logic board recently replaced.
    Problems only after 10.6.5 update.
    No external display.
    Videos play ok for a minute or so in VLC and quicktime fullscreen but freeze with any interaction. Login screen appears 20-30 seconds later.
    Adobe software seems ok. Recently worked on a 1GB+ PSD file in Ps CS5 for a few hours with no issues.
    Firefox 4.0b7 has flash errors on youtube whenever a tab is closed. The video on the next active tab turns into a 'sad brick' icon.
    There are occasional inexplicable 'beach ball of death' freezes, which last for a few minutes and never happened before. They are more frequent with VMWare and Nimbuzz (an IM client). Both of these programs did not cause issues before the 10.6.5 update, though. During the freezes, the cpu usage is not significantly different from before or after; there are no sudden spikes or jumps. Nor do there appear to be memory leaks or disk errors.
