    Hi folks, my issue is in regard to my 2011 Macbook Air 13" base model. I know this is a Pro forum, but my research has indicated this issue exists with Pro models, and I wanted to see if anyone else was having it.

    Sometimes, quite frequently, my Air's screen will look like this in the log-in screen after waking it from full sleep. It looks like the image is scrambled. Once I log in, the screen goes back to normal. When it happens, it happens across different areas of the screen each time. My Air is up to date with software, and I've also attempted rebooting, and rebooting doing a PRAM reset. The scrambled screen still remains.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a sign of a failing screen to come? Or a failing graphics card? What is it?

    Info: I'm running Lion (the latest version, which I believe is 10.7.2). I've owned it since August 2011, and honestly haven't used it very frequently. It has sustained no damages (ie. drops, spills, or anything...).

    EDIT: Nevermind. Wrong thread. This should be in the Air thread. Very sorry.
