    Hey guys,
    I was using my MBP when I noticed that the display (the built in one) looked a little washed out. To make sure my color profile was set to the correct one, I opened up the display panel in System Preferences. The moment I opened it, the display snapped back to its regular appearance. As far as I can tell, it goes into the washed out version after going to screensaver and coming back, and going into display prefs is the only way to restore it. Anyone seen this before or know how to keep it from doing this?

    That hasn't happened to me.

    Maybe you should delete your profile and re-calibrate.

    I'm not even using a custom profile, the only one under preferences is the one it came with (which you can't delete).
