    I have a Macbook Pro Early 2011.

    Yesterday I updated to 10.8.5 and theres something wrong with sleep now, when I close the lid the first time it sleeps fine, when I open the lid up and close it again it wont sleep if I dont put it to sleep manually, what is wrong?

    Second problem I have is that I have black bars on every single video I watch even though I have my MPB resolution set to the highest, 1440x900.

    If I use a lower resolution I still have the annoying black bars.

    Here is what I mean with that:


    I would appreciate it alot if someone could help me solve these annoying little things

    The video you are playing has a different aspect ratio (height vs width) than your Macbook, so you end up with black bars on the top and the bottom. When this happens your Mac can do one of three things:

    1. Stretch the video (ugly - everyone looks 10 feet tall)
    2. Cut off the sides of the video (unfortunate - no one likes to lose data)
    3. Do nothing.

    Your Mac wisely chooses option 3.

    Some video players (like VLC) let you make a different choice.

    The black bars are on top and bottom, that is because aspect ratio too, right?

    I hate these black bars, it looks so ugly.
