    Hi all..

    I have MBP 17", I have upgraded to Lion once it was released and it was working perfectly, no issues at all, until last night suddenly I got a blue stripped screen and could not do anything so I forced rest it, when I switched it on again, I got access to the system but once I start using it the screen got overlapping and froze ! could not do anything as well, so again I forced rest it, but this time I cant even access the system, I get the gray screen with Apple logo, then Apple logo disappear and I only get the gray screen and cant access the system or do anything else !

    I tried to do disk repair and seems all is good.

    Any advice ?
    Should I downgrade to SL and wait till the next update of Lion ?
    If yes, how I can downgrade ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I also have a MacBook Pro 17 (2011) and I got the blue screen a few hours ago.
    It happened when coming out of sleep......just blue screen - had to force power off....first time this has ever happened to me with a mac.

    OSX Lion seems slightly buggy, can't wait for the first update.
    But otherwise am enjoying it. : )

    Hasn't happened to me yet, but yes, I have noticed the slight quirkiness of Lion at times. I hope they release some patches soon! :)
