    Okay, sorry for making what's probably the 400th topic on the issue, but I've had my MBP for a little over a month now and am wondering whether or not I have a yellow screen issue... The thing is, it's not all that noticeable, however, when I open the computer and turn it on from sleep mode or something else, I notice the screen flickers for a second and becomes slightly yellower than it was when I opened it.

    Truth be told, if not that for that flicker I would have no clue about this whole thing, haha.

    Is this the screen yellowing everyone's talking about? I assumed it was a more permanent thing before I realized my screen is, in fact, becoming yellow.

    I could be wrong but I believe what you are seeing is osx applying your color profile. On login it definitely changes the color profile from the default to your own and there is a visible flicker/change of color temperature - not so sure about sleep though. Definitely not uneven yellow gradient that plagues somes screens though.

    Are you using a custom profile?

    Because I'm a fool and momentarily forgot there was an "official" thread.

    I believe this may be it... I tinkered around with the color profile and I think that's what's going on even though I'm using the default profile. Either way I find this a lot more likely than my screen tinting itself the wrong color, ha.

    If you don't notice it then I would say its not a problem.

    That is exactly what's happening. I've seen the same thing on my MBP and other Macs as well.
