    I've had the bug since installing the latest Lion update 10.7.3

    I never shut down my 17" MBP, just close the lid and let it sleep, however, since the latest Lion update when I open the lip the screen illumination comes on briefly and then turns off - I then hit one of the screen brightness buttons (F1 & F2) and the screen illumination comes back on.

    How do I go about correcting this ?


    PS. Sorry if this has been posted - a search didn't come up with anything.

    The same problem is reported on the Apple forum, but no solution.

    I've read that reseting the power controls could resolve this bug, but not sure how to perform the reset.

    Solved.

    A printer that's not connected had a print jog in the queue.
