    I need some help and advice. My Mac Book Pro has began with a problem. The screen goes partially gray with strips if it has been on without being use for some time. Even if it was in sleep. To fix it I have to either re-star or put it in sleep for few seconds. Please tell me what to do? Is it the beginning of the end? Is it probably the battery old? To much GB used?

    Thanks for the help!

    It is probably a hardware failure -- either the motherboard (most likely, I think), or possibly the display or the cable that runs up to the display. It's probably not the memory or the battery. If you can take it to an Apple store for evaluation, that's what I would start with.
