    Hey Guys. i got a macbook pro 13 retina that i have hooked up over hdmi to a samsung screen , 27 inches nothing special.

    My laptop never experienced any sort of crashes up until i started to use the external screen , I've used yosemite for like 3 months before i attached the external screen.

    It all started with random logoffs , followed with application crashes (Chrome and skype) and now from time to time i can't log in after the screen saver kicks in .. when i unplug the HDMI cable all returns to normal.

    I know I'm not providing any logs of anything etc etc .. but just wondering if somebody it's experiencing the same problem. I'm about to do a clean yosemite install as the last time i did an upgrade from the previous OSX version.
    Any ideas?

    Just a question, does your log in screen appear on your Samsung display or on your MacBook Pro when you first turn it on?

    on the samsung.

    I read yesterday that for some folks this was fixed on 10.10.2 .. not my case.
    But also that a custom color setting might cause this ... and i had a custom color setting on the samsung screen.. I'll keep you posted.
