    hey guys i bought the minidisplay port to dvi and been using it. it works, but when my mbp screen shuts off and i move the mouse to wake the screen, my external monitor does not turn on. i have to unplug the minidisplay port and replug it in, in order for the screen to show up on the external. i was also wondering if any of you guys have a loose screen. say i have my mbp open and i tilt it forward, the screen isnt locked, but in fact opens even more. is it supposed to be like that or am i the only one having that problem?

    I had the same problem too but different condition. Had a 24" Eizo connected through minidisplay port to DVI. Instead of having the external monitor not turning on, the display is corrupted. I have to unplug it and plug in again to fix it.

    About the loose screen, if you checked a couple of earlier topics it is supposed to be like that due to the design of the lightweight screen. If you tilt it and give it a tiny nudge the screen will collapse on gravity.
