    Hi all.

    Anyone else got this problem? I found some threads with similar problems, but no solutions :(

    Sometimes my icons disappear. If I press the empty spaces they come back, but its still annoying.

    Is this enough to request a replacement or a repair? It only happens sometimes.

    Video unavailable. Don't know of any resolution for this, in any case. Undoubtedly a bug.

    Try holding the fn (function) key (button left) for a second and see if they come back after you let go.

    Haven't had the issue, but I read about this somewhere recently...

    Interesting! I had heard that rebooting helps, but people were using the FN button trick to avoid constantly rebooting. It's obviously a bug.
    Do you have Better Touch Tool installed? Not blaming it, just wondering...

    Rebooting helps, so does the FN trick, but the problem comes back after some time. I dont have Touch Tool installed.
