    Hi All, my first post!!!

    I am having problems on the logon on screen of my penryn macbook pro running snow leopard.

    I get to the log on screen and start typing my password in, then all of a sudden the blue border disappears from the password window and i cant type anymore.

    if i click back on the window all is ok and i finish typing my password and log on ok.

    The same thing happens if i do nothing after the log on screen appears, the blue border of the password window disappears after 4 seconds. if i click on the password window again all is ok again

    this only happens on power up or a restart.

    its only a small thing but very annoying.

    can anybody help

    Try to disable the login screen, restart and then enable it again and see if it happens again.
