    Hi everyone, I have a very annoying problem with my MacBook unibody probably since the last Front Row update.

    After several hours my mac is running linked to my LCD screen through MiniDisplay Port - VGA connector, Front Row simply doesn't start. It fades to black for a while but then it immediately fades back to the desktop. I uninstalled every application might have affected Front Row (Caffeine, LastFm, TV Row) but it was useless. I even tried to fix permissions in the Disk Utility, but it didn't help.

    I also noted that in the same circumstances Exposé and Dashboard don't work if I press the F3 and F4 keys respectively on the keyboard, but if I click on their icons (or, in the case of Dashboard, if I do the 4-finger gesture on the trackpad) they run normally.

    Anyway, when my MacBook isn't plugged with the LCD screen, Exposé, Front Row and Dashboard work fine.

    Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

    same problem with Front Row on dual screen

    I'm having the exact same combined problem as Sturmerabe. Any ideas?

    Can't say anything to this... I run my MacBook Pro Unibody at home sometimes through two 30" Displays... and I have no problem with Front Row....
