    So when I wake my MBP SR from sleep, the screen turns really bright, then dies down just a little bit. Seems like the colors are a little more dull..

    I tired putting the brightness up all the way and no cigar... Is this a warm-up time issue or what?


    Thanks

    Mine does this as well. My best guess is that there is a slight delay before your ColorSync profile gets reapplied after awakening from sleep. What you see during this time is a display with no color or gamma correction.

    ambient light sensor. if your room is dark, the screen will go darker. but like yours, mine usually goes to as high as i have it set to, and then back down to whatever it thinks is best.

    just my guess. i've only had mine for a few days.

    hmm.. i think i remember my old iMac G5 doing that when i would switch users.. like each user had their own color calibration or something.. i dunno.
