    When waking from sleep after 4-5 hours, my screen will occasionally briefly flash green before the lockscreen appears. No lasting effects from what I can tell but it's a bit strange. Wondering if anyone else has a similar issue and whether or not it's worth bringing into the Genius Bar? I cannot seem to replicate it, and it appears to be random..

    I experience this every time I wake my 13 2016 with Touch Bar from sleeping more than 1-2 hours. i get a more pixilated green screen though.

    Have you brought this to the attention of anyone in the GB?

    I see pinkish/violet flash on screen - rarely/sometimes - on this exact machine. I think this is driver waking up stuff and not getting all done as quickly as expected. Keep in mind that Apple had real problem with this specific hardware and HS. Early versions of HS had real issues waking up or booting while connected to external display - sometimes you ended with solid color display (green or pinkish for me) and only solution was hard reboot without external display. There were also problems connecting external display through some dongles/ports... At that time I reported it as bugs and they acknowledged it was driver problem. In current version it seems mostly fixed. They even inquired later if I my issues were fixed.
    You can report it as bug in the their bug report page, but it may not be worth it. It seems working fine else, so who cares...

    I haven't yet, I'm actually experiencing multiple other issues such as battery life, ports feeling lose,intermitten keyboard issues, when tilting Mac back and forth I can feel something moving inside. none of these issues are too serious to hinder any work I do at the moment but I'm documenting everything that way I can go to the store with proof. I do have AppleCare which should take care of the repairs, if they deicide to do so or give me anther device as I would assume repairing that many different components would be more than the price of a different unit itself

    Which version of High Sierra are you currently using? I have a similar issue where my monitor has gray snow or static when waking from sleep. It started after High Sierra update 10.13.4.

    Here is my thread with others experiencing the same issue.. https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...nitor-static-after-waking-from-sleep.2113498/

    I don't think it's a bug as I've had the same issue throughout 10.13.4 and many betas. I've recently noticed that my LCD is dislodged in its casing as well (moving the unit from side to side will result in a noticeable clicking noise - similar to this: ) which I think might be contributing to the issue - I've had a screen on a 2016 unit replaced due to a similar issue before as well.

    Must admit - less than thrilled with the QC on the recent products.

    Sorry I misspoke. I meant the issue started with the 10.13.4 update.

    If you have AppleCare or still within the one year manufacturer warranty, I’d definitely take it in to get that knocking noise fixed, that would bug the crap out of me if I had that issue.

    On the screen glitch, I still wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a software issue, as ever since High Sierra was released there have been a lot of graphical glitches that people have. I think it has to do with the software being updated to support to eGPUs.
