    Anyone know if this might be a problem or not? I wasn't really doing anything I had just opened up iTunes and then the screen on my MacBook went black for maybe a second and then it came back I'm not sure if it's a problem or not should I get it checked out? Nothing happened but I just wanna make sure, I've had my Macbook maybe a little over 2 months now and haven't had any problems with it yet.

    Assuming you bought your MacBook from Apple, you've got a 1 year warranty. If the problem persists, bring it in to an Apple store, but theres no reason to bring it in now. They'll probably laugh at you if you bring it in saying that the screen went black once ;)

    Might want to check "Screen Saver" in System Prefs and make sure none of the Hot Corners are set up. If so, when the mouse enters the "hot corner" the screen can go black, the comp can go to sleep, etc.
