    The default color profile is on "Color LCD" as set in System prefs. Sometimes when waking the computer out of sleep mode, and sometimes even while using it, the color becomes more pale, the display is still completely usable, and the untrained eye will not notice the difference. However, going to Display Preferences, fixes the problem and it goes back to the "Color LCD" profile.

    For you MBP owners out there to know what I mean, open up Display prefs and select Apple RGB or something other than "color LCD" on the built in display. That is what it reverts to at times, and going into display preferences without touching anything else, just going in and exiting out fixes the problem.

    I really hope that it is not a problem with the video card, I am just wondering that is this something that happens to others as well? Though it does not seem like it is a hardware problem, I really hope it isn't one, otherwise I better send it into Apple...though I would rather not be without my computer for weeks.

    P.S My external display which is being used as my main monitor, does not do this. Only happens on the built in display. Also this happens pretty random, so its not like I can show Apple that easily. If there will be no future ill-effects to the MBP down the road, I can and will live with it.

    When my MBP wakes from sleep, I've noticed a 1/2-second delay before my ColorSync profile gets reapplied. Perhaps there's a bug in this process that affects certain configurations. One difference between your system and mine is that I don't run an external display.

    Just a few minutes ago, I have found out that it also does happen on the main display, this being having the computer just come out of sleep...funny thing was the built in display was fine.

    I think it doees have something to do with the ColorSync profiles. Does anyone have any idea how to fix them? thanks in advance.

    I have noticed it only happens to whichever monitor the menu bar is on. This is one of the weirdest problems I have encountered ever with computers.

    Same here, however the colors that I see on my screen before it reverts back to my profile are really nice looking, not crazy colors like the RGB one. The fact that it does this is what made me realize my stock profile suuucked, cause I would open the computer and see great colors, and then yellow would wash over it. I almost appreciate that it does this because that's how I realized I badly needed to calibrate.

    Glad to know I am not the only one. I will live with it though, its not a major big IMO, and I am not about to reinstall the OS because of it (it's not Windows ;))
