Seriously need help guys my life depends on this machine.
What should I do?
- tried reset PRAM, didn't help.
- Sometimes changing the colour profile will do but it keeps happening everyday.
- It only happens when there was a CD in the slot.
- Almost every time happen after wake the screen up.
- no matter the power line has been plugged or not this will happen.

Probably the GPU and sorry but being immature isn't an excuse for ignorance.

Why in the WORLD would you hinge your life on a 13" macbook pro????

Mission critical applications like this require atleast an xserve w/ failover to another xserve offsite.

is it still in warranty?

It's still under warranty, but I just not sure how long it would takes to fix.
I guess I need to visit apple store tomorrow.

It's refurbished by the way.
Thanks for the reply everyone!
