    Nope - can't. I need to wait for an 800mb work-related download to finish. Then I'll reboot.

    You don't need to reboot. Hold down Opt + Cmd + Eject

    given how widespread this is, does applecare fix it? or what's the deal?

    wow I just did this without thinking and my computer turned blank instantly. Is this a quick way to put your mac to sleep?

    Yea just reboot, it will go away. That happened to me in my first day of owning a Mac, and I got extremely nervous. I did what I always do when Windows messes up and rebooted the machine. Never happened again.

    I had the same problem with mine new MBP my was less than a month old, how old is yours? because when I took it to store here in the Boca Raton they told me that I was getting my computer replace because that is an issue that MAC hasn't made official, so don't hesitate take the computer they should fix it or replace it !!!! Look mine :eek:

    I think the problem has to do with power/sleep.

    It happened to me once when I accidentally yanked out the magsafe. I put the computer to sleep and it went away.
