    So I got my new MBPr today and I'm having this annoying issue. Sometimes when it wakes up from sleep, all I get is a black screen but I can still see the mouse curser, and I can move it. After about 10 seconds it works fine again. Has anyone had this problem? Is it a software or hardware issue? Here's a video from someone else who has the same problem.

    What was the problem? I've noticed this a bit on my new rMBP as well.

    I, too, would like to know what the problem was, because mine has done this several times. Do tell...

    I did some research, and someone said that the problem was Spotify. So I closed the program, and waited for the computer to go to sleep. Once I woke it up, the problem was gone. To make sure the problem was in fact related to Spotify, I opened Spotify and tried it again, and the problem was back. So I assume the problem is in fact with Spotify.
