    My screen seems to randomly flicker when on power saving mode, I know it's not my browser because it happens throughout the OS randomly. What it does is for a split second a single line of pixels across the screen goes black or white and then normal: also the GPU diode no longer shows in Istate.

    It doesn't happen too often but enough to annoy me, I was wondering if anyone had the same problem. Any suggestions?

    I use a 2.53Ghz, 4Gb RAM, 15inch unibody MBP, with the 512 Nvidia 9400/9600M GT

    I had the same problem with my 15" 10/2008 2.53GHz MBP, it did flicker while using the 9400M graphics card.

    The only solution was switching to the 9600M.

    If you still have warranty, talk to Apple.
