    Woke my C2D MBP from sleep to find a horrendous blue tint to the screen, googled it and found it is a fairly common problem but none of the solutions that seemed to work for everyone have worked for me. Tried the terminal command, tried turning a screensaver on and then off, tried ctrl-cmd-eject to restart the screen - nada.

    Any ideas? :( Does this mean it's hardware? :(

    When did you purchase your macbook pro?

    I had a late 2007 (with the dreaded NVIDIA 8600 GPU) that experienced this same problem. When you hook it up to an external monitor do you get the same issue? Mine was diagnosed as the GPU starting to fail again (which lead to a 2nd logic board replacement).

    I'm on a 9600, could the same still apply?

    EDIT: Probably not as I'm currently on the 9400
