    I have a MacBook Pro that is running very odd. After logging in, I get to see my desktop for maybe 5-15 seconds and then the background gets a clear light blue overlay on top of it for a second or two and then a few seconds later I'm back at the login screen again.
    I am able to get into my account in safe mode.
    I have deleted the the Launchservices cache (its the only suggestion I've come across online)
    I have run verify disk, repair disk, verify disk permissions, repair disk permissions, and fsck -yp.
    I have also created a test admin account and still have the same issue.
    Does anyone have an suggestions on what to do or check or try?
    Oh I have also unchecked all of the login items

    Thanks in advance.

    When in safe mode, look at Console for Windowserver crashes and any others to see if that gives any clues.
    Look at /Library/LaunchAgents and /Library/LaunchDaemons to see what's there and might be loading at startup.
    Any 3rd party extensions installed and/or peripherals attached?

    Well when I look in the library folder I can find the launchagents folder which contains:
    com.adobe.arm.202f408...7ae.plist com.apple.CSConfigDotMa...gent.plist and com.google.keystone.agent.plist.
    I do not see a LaunchDaemons folder.

    I will confess I haven't really had any experience in troubleshooting a mac, I really don't have any love for this OS try not to hold that against me.

    As for your other question, there are no peripherals attached to this machine, and from what I can see (looking in the Login Items) there aren't any 3rd party extensions.

    Also, provide some details about your computer: operating system version, model of computer, etc.
    There will be a LaunchDaemons folder in /Library (from the top level of your disk, not in your home folder.)
    Also, as I said in my last message, from Safe Boot, open Console and look for anything to do with WindowServer in the crash logs listed. Where they show up in Console can depend on what version of operating system you have.

    Try running this utillity. It will show any launch items to help pin this down. Just paste up the output of the app and we can take a look for you.

    Maybe try creating a new account and see if you can log into the new account without a problem.

    Mine does too!. About half the time when I open my 2012 mbp 2.3 i7 after it has been sleeping the log on screen has a little yellow check mark next to my name (going on memory here). I enter my password, the whole screen gets a blue overlay and a little sequence bar opens under the password area. The bars populate left to right quickly, the blue overlay goes away and my normal logon screen appears. After entering the password (again) the MBP boots and runs flawlessly.
