    Last night, for no apparent reason the screen on my late 2008/early 09 uMBP flicked to completely black for about 2-3 seconds and then flicked back to normal. and now it just did it again.

    the laptop is a refurb that I bought less than a month ago. Is there some setting I am unaware of that I might have accidently set that would cause this to happen?

    Maybe a loose cable? If it happens again, you should definitely call Apple.
