I posted this thread in the MBP forum a couple of weeks ago but no one had a solution. Since then i've called apple and they couldnt do much. when i connect my macbook to the vga monitor, it works great in mirror mode. but wont work in clamshell mode. when i connect it to other screens, such as my tv, it works great. so the problem lyes in the monitor. why does it work in mirror but not in clamshell? the brand is DCLCD and i got it from newegg. i should also add the monitor works fine when hooked up to a regular computer. what could the issue be? when i wake the macbook up from sleep, the monitor just flickers like its trying to adjust itself. i really hope someone can help!
