Up until a few weeks ago, I use to be able to connect my MacBook Air (latest generation) to my 27" Cinema Display and it would wake up, shift the desktop from the laptop to the display, and just work. Now, when I connect my Cinema Display to my MacBook Air, one of two things happen. Usually, the display won't even react at all, and I have to restart my MacBook Air in order for the Cinema Display to wake up, or, sometimes the Cinema Display will wake up, the desktop will move from my laptop to the display, but the Cinema Display will only show a blue screen and I can move my cursor back and forth between displays and switch fullscreen apps but the screen stays blue and I have to force a restart.

How do I fix this?

I'm seeing this too - MacBook Air 2011 11" on a 27" Cinema Display. Did you ever find a solution?
