    Okay at random times when I wake the computer up from sleep, the cursor starts becoming jumpy and stutters real bad. Only way to fix it is a restart. It's almost like the computer is going slow, but it's just the cursor. I have plenty of resources left to use and programs still load up quickly. This seems very odd and I haven't seen this problem mentioned here before. Also I have 4 gigs of RAM installed.. but that couldn't be the issue could it? Everything else runs fine.

    Thanks for any help!

    You know what, I have a very similar problem, the mouse pointer dissapear in white areas of the screen and it's very difficult to navigate or browse the internet, I also have 4 GB of RAM installed, I don't know either if that's some sort of side effect. All I know it's weird and I don't like.
    Plus I tought that with 4GB installed it would fly open my Adobe appications and surprise! that's not the case.

    I just tried THIS SOLUTION.. so I'll post the results after awhile. It only does it when I wake the computer up from sleep. This fixed it for other people.

    I had the same problem on my week old mac. I took it back to the genius bar and they confirmed the problem. It would happen only after I wake the laptop up from sleep. It sort of like a delay in response to the trackpad. I ended up getting the MBP replaced. Not too sure exactly what the problem is.

    I started having this problem about a week ago. I removed iStat pro and the problem has gone away.

    That link I posted did fix the problem. It just happened again. I guess I'm gonna have to go to the Apple store. This is a refurb I received in the mail last week. If they need to replace it, will they replace it with another refurb, or just give me a new one?

    This problem is very annoying...

    iStat just released a new version today. It supposedly fixes bugs with SR models. We'll see if this does the trick...

    Thanks. I'll give this new version a try. If it don't work, it's easy to remove again.

    I had the problem with the stuttering mouse and the display that wouldn't wake after sleeping. They were fixed after I removed iStat.
