    I have a mini, and for some time now, whenever the power saver kicks in to turn the screen off, it immediately comes back on. I've tried changing the settings a few times, but each time the LCD monitor goes blank, it immediately lights back up.

    I don't have a screen saver, only the power saver setting, and it worked correctly for some time.

    I use the apple bluetooth mouse and keyboard, could they possibly be causing the problem?

    If the batteries are low, I find that my Apple mouse/keyboard do exactly that.

    I continue to have this problem on a regular basis.

    Whenever the system blanks the screen, it immediately comes back on after a pause of a about 2 seconds.

    I keep parallels running a big portion of the time, and I thought that might be the problem, but it does it even when parallels isn't running.

    After a reboot, it works fine for about 3-4 days, then it breaks again.

    Anyone have any ideas??
