    Every once and a while, usually when my MacBook is running on it's battery, the screen will show a black screen for nearly only a millisecond or two. It's not too bothersome, and it usually blinks back to normal before I can notice it, but nevertheless I don't want it, and from what I can recall, this only started happening after I installed the Snow Leopard Graphics Update.

    Is anybody else getting these problems on their MBPs or MBs? MacBook config details in my sig.

    I'm noticing the problem more and more frequently on my 2010 MBP detailed in my signature. Has anyone got a fix or a story with Apple support?

    Thanks,

    Bump...

    Any ideas? I've seen this twice sitting in front of my machine in class. The occurrence is very inconsistent. Didn't show for the last couple weeks.
