    im getting this problem with my macbook using a external screen. i know its not my mointor.

    i think it maybe the graphic driver or the port as cable fell out my external screen port very badly few days ago but if i change resolution it fixes it for a while.

    it does do it all the time but requires/reboot/resolution change

    for now ive put my macbook on the lowest res and external on highest 1650x1050

    how can i turn off my macbook screen to see if it fixes the problem i tryed closing the lid which uts the mac to sleep but wireslles/key/mouse dont wake it up....

    are you talking about the black sqaures you are getting around some icons on your dock?

    If so, try removing everything from your dock and replacing...

    If that doesnt work it looks like there is a small bug with your os version which should hopefully be corrected in 10.5.2!
