    I have a problem where if i have an image on my screen for a while, and i change to a different window etc, the image remains burned onto my screen as a kind of imprint, and fades slowly. I saw it being referred to as 'permanance' on the Apple help site, and i followed their instructions but to no avail. Any tips for this one, guys?

    What exact MBP do you have, and can you link to "Apple Help Site" article you refer to, thus we know, what you have tried?
    Can you make a photograph and attach it to your next post?

    My mistake, it was called 'persistence.'
    Here's the article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2807

    Its a little difficult to make out, but my camera isn't all that good. This is basically my desktop visible even though I'm on the internet. Shows up better on darker images though.

    I had the same problem on my iMac. It was much worse, but the Genius Bar at my Apple Store replaced my screen for free.

    Okay, thanks for the advice. Guess I'm gonna have to bring my macbook to the genius bar... well if replacing the screen solves the problem then I'll report back.

    For how long did you display an all-white image as Apple instructs?
