    My MBP, (2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 , 10.8.5) has started to periodically totally go black, like it's shut down, all of a sudden. Then, after about 10, 15 seconds, will come back on, like nothing happened. It doesn't have any rhyme or reason - doesn't matter if I'm typing or not, it will just go black. At first, this only happened once every 2 weeks or so, but now, it's happening once in every work session, like every day. I fear that this is going to keep getting worse and, might ultimately result in total death, which I don't want. any ideas as to what might be causing this?

    Did you notice the same behaviour prior to upgrading to 10.8.5 or did it start after the software update? Are you using a mid-2010 15" MBP?


    This might actually be part of a known issue with the mid-2010 models. You'll have to print out the support doc and show it to a Genius for repair/replacement.
