Hello everyone,

Have a base model MBPR that I ordered recently, which came factory installed Mountain Lion on it. I did all the updates for the OSX.

I've been having some problem while my Thunderbolt Display plugged in:

I (almost) always use my rMBP in clamshell mode at home, I get everything right on the TB display. But if I want to go back to my rMBP screen, I don't get anything, just a black screen (no backlight etc.). Also plugging TB display back won't work, it does NOT power on at all. So I have to do a hard reset whenever I have this problem.

Occasionally I use AirDisplay but it shouldn't be a problem here.

Thanks for the time/comments...

Today I started to get sleeping/wake-up issues: BT keyboard or magic trackpad cannot wake up the rMBP with TB display attached. :confused:

I know there's a lot of issues right now in Mountain Lion when it comes to Thunderbolt displays, so you may just have to be patient for 10.8.2 or 10.8.3 etc

Press Command 1 to enable display mirroring. Give that a shot.
I will try this for sure. Would Command+2 disables the mirroring?

That's true and I don't understand why they weren't addressed in 10.8.1. :confused:

for some reason if you plug a display into the TB port you can't sleep or suspend your rMBP in any way. If a screen saver comes on it will lock in SS mode and not let you login...if you sleep it will crash upon wake or lock all of your applications up. I have started unplugging any and all displays before putting it to sleep and waking it before plugging in and I haven't had any issues. Unfortunately that means clamshell mode will be plagued with issues.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon because it is really annoying!!

Command+2 won't response either. :(

Just recently I started to get kernel panics. It sleeps and after waking it up it responses normally 2 or 3 seconds and kernel panic...

Do you think taking it to the Apple Store would be any good?

Here is the error I got last time:

You might as well send the report to apple, whether or not they'll do anything about it is anyones guess.
I remember similar issue with external displays from 10.6.8 that never got resolved even in Lion.

Maybe it's the same thing.

After the mark has spent their money, they're out.

I always send error reports to the Apple.

I was using my 23" ACD without any problems on Late 2010 MBA.

Recently purchased this TB display hoping to get same satisfaction, i guess I was wrong this time.

Hello everyone,

Have a base model MBPR that I ordered recently, which came factory installed Mountain Lion on it. I did all the updates for the OSX.

I've been having some problem while my Thunderbolt Display plugged in:

I (almost) always use my rMBP in clamshell mode at home, I get everything right on the TB display. But if I want to go back to my rMBP screen, I don't get anything, just a black screen (no backlight etc.). Also plugging TB display back won't work, it does NOT power on at all. So I have to do a hard reset whenever I have this problem.

Occasionally I use AirDisplay but it shouldn't be a problem here.

Thanks for the time/comments...
Do a complete format and reinstall on your RMBP. It will fix your problem. I don't know why but that's how I solved it.

You had the same problems? Actually I was even planning to try Mac OS X Lion.

Did you use your recovery partition for the fresh install?

This is just so annoying after spending this amount of money... :rolleyes:

How do you use the recover partition for the fresh install? Does that mean it installs locally?

Actually I just did a fresh install via Internet Recovery. It solved all my problems being in clamshell, plug-in, and un-plug from TBD as well.

I don't know, I was just asking how did you perform the fresh install.

I will give your method a try. Did you use the timemachine backup to restore after the fresh install or you did re-install everything manually?

Thanks!

This reminds me of the giant headache allot of people experienced when using the newly introduced Thunderbolt ports with the mini-display port 24" ACD's. THere was a super annoying random flickering of the screen. There was a huge thread on Apple's forum's and a long period of APple denying there was an issue. FInally APple admitted there was an issue and pushed out an EFI update that solved it. I think it took over a year. So just sit tight buddy.

I did everything manually just to be safe. I have a Time Capsule that does regular backups but never really use it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! It worked! I am not getting any kernel panics or other wake/sleep issues any more!

Today is day 2, I will update here if I experience any problem.
