MacBook Pro :: Black Screen With Cursor For 5-10 Seconds When Trying To Wake Immediately After Display Sleep

Jun 23, 2014

I've noticed that when my rMBP (late 2013, Mavericks) turns off the display automatically while on battery (as configured via Energy Saver) and I try to wake it immediately, I get a black screen with the cursor, rather than my password/unlock screen.  It remains a black screen, with the cursor moveable, for 5-10 seconds or so, and then the password/unlock screen will appear as usual. 

This does not happen if:I don't try to wake the display/computer immediately after automatic display sleep (e.g., I wait 5-10 seconds and it's fine)I turn off the display using a hot corner and immediately wake the displayI put the computer to sleep by closing the lid and immediately wake it by opening the lidI select Sleep from the System/Apple menu and immediately wake it by pressing a key or clicking on the trackpad 

Why automatic display sleep is causing this temporary black screen?  I currently get around it by setting the time for automatic display sleep while on battery to 10 minutes instead of the default 3 minutes to minimize the chances of needing to immediately wake the screen.  I'd like to keep it at 3 minutes if possible to maximize energy savings, but the temporary black screen is really annoying if I didn't really want display sleep and consequently have to wake immediately.

IMac :: Black Screen Display When Wake Up From Sleep

Dec 21, 2010

For the past few weeks it has been going to a black screen when trying to wake it up from sleep. Either I've put it through too much work lately editing all these photos and its really tired. So, often it wakes up normally and functions fine, well, not really. It is seemingly very slow. It requires a lot of time (more than before) to open up a program or it gives me the "spinning wheel of death" when trying to go to a different page on the internet or open up a folder on my desktop. Amongst other things that require it to think. So It's just a lot slower in general than before.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Display Remaining Black After Wake Up From Sleep

Jun 14, 2012

I have very recently upgraded to Lion on my late 2009 Intel Core 2 Duo iMac.When the machine goes to sleep on wake up - instead of going to the log on screen, the display remains black but when I move the mouse the display creates a grey pixel trace wherever the pointer should be. I also end up with the desktop clock in the top right.

To log on, I have to literally "colour in" the area where my profile icon should be which enables me to input my password.Also, on wake up, any applications that I had open like Safari, Word, iTunes etc are all closed and not open in the dock. On a separate matter, when this happens I cant wake my imac up to access my itunes library for home sharing on my ATV3 and 4S.

OS X :: Black Screen When Wake From Sleep

Mar 10, 2010

When I wake from a long sleep, my screen comes on but everything is black. If I move my mouse around, the tiles behind the pointer switch over to whatever app is open. When I invoke expose/spaces, the screen fixes itself and displays everything.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Black Screen Upon Wake Up After Longer Sleep?

Mar 9, 2012

In the last 2 months or so, I have seen my MacMini 2011 OSX 10.7.3 crashing withing a minute of wakeup, after sleeps of more than 2-3 hours. 

Sometimes the Black screen occurs almost immediately, sometimes it takes up to a minute after the desktop appears (after logging in). This did not occur until I got 10.7.3 and only within the last 2 months.

Intel Mac :: 2011 Screen Unexpectedly Goes Black (to Sleep), Won't Wake

Feb 19, 2012

I'm using an iMac (late 2011) with 10.7.3. I'm doing things on the computer or some process is going on when the screen instantly goes black (no dimming first). If a video was playing, I can still hear it playing, but pushing keys on the keyboard or mouse or pad does nothing to wake the screen. Sometimes pushing the power button a number of times will get the screen to come on, sometimes it won't. When the screen goes black, if an external drive was running and then stops, I can sometimes get the screen to come to live. Sometimes this black screen happens when I'm burning a DVD; when the DVD is finished, I can bring the screen to life. I thought one of my two external drives was bad, so I disconnected it. That seemed to help (though verifying the disk revealed no problems). But a few minutes ago, the screen instantly went black again; no dimming first. There have been times I thought this was associated with a new bit of software, but then it returns even after I delete the suspect software. Sometimes I have to use the power button to shut down the iMac then restart it. Once, I had to unplug and replug the iMac before I could get the computer to respond and the screen to return to life. I don't know if this is a hardware problem (internal or external), a software problem, or some combination...or something I haven't thought of, at all.

MacBook Pro :: Black Screen After Waking Up From Sleep With Connected Dell Display?

Aug 17, 2009

I have a 2 month old 13" MBP which I absolutely love. The only hitch is that there is an oddity when connected to my Dell 2008wfp display. It only happens when I wake the MBP from sleep. A number of things happen sometimes. Usuaully, when I wake the MBP from sleep, i get a black screen on both displays and all I can see and control is the cursor. Sometimes the main display will be black, but the MBP display will show the desktop wallpaper, but again, I can only see and control the mouse cursor. It should also be worth mentioning that the keyboard is rendered non-functional as well.

Sometimes, OS X will appear on both displays, with mouse cursor active, keyboard inactive, but I am unable to click anything or interact with anything OS X.

Anyway, I'm at the point where I need to mention this because it happens quite frequently and its getting rather annoying. The only way I can get out of this hang, is to cold reboot the machine. It happens everyday and at least 50% of the time I wake the MBP from sleep. When not connected to the display, I never get this occurrence. Also, this display worked perfectly when I used to own the classic 15" MBP, so its hard for me to pinpoint what exactly is the anomaly that is happening.

Anyone else experiencing this same issue? I am using a mini display port to DVI adapter to the Dell display.

OS X :: Mouse Pointer Converted Into Black Square After Sleep Mode

A bizarre thing: when I wake my Cube from sleep, the mouse pointer seems to have converted itself into a black 1" square. As soon as I click in a program it changes back to an arrow.

MacBook Pro :: Wake Up By Opening Lid - Display Goes Black After Few Moments

Jun 29, 2012

I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro (2.0 GHz i7, 4 Gig Memory, Lion.7 with all upgrades) that has just started behaving strangely. When I put it to sleep by closing the lid and wake it up by opening the lid, the display is normal for a moment or two, then goes black. The keyboard is lit, and clicking on the trackpad gives me an alert sound, but it seems impossible to get the screen to light up. The only way I can get the screen back is to restart the computer. Putting it to sleep by clicking on sleep in the Apple menu works fine (it wakes up normally), but closing the lid doesn't.

MacBook Pro :: Charging Display Does Not Wake From Sleep?

Mar 31, 2012

I have a 17" MacBook Pro Early 2011. I have noticed some strange behavior when I am charging the laptop. 

For whatever reason, when I close the lid and put the machine to sleep, no matter how long the machine has been asleep when I open the lid again the machine wakes up just fine and the login screen shows, and then the display goes right back to sleep. This is not the entire machine - just the display. To wake the display, I have to unplug the Magsafe adapter. The screen comes back immediately after doing this. Plugging the machine back in does not cause the laptop to go back to sleep.All updates have been performed (Software Update gives me no available updates), and other than this issue there are no other problems with the machine. To my immediate knowledge, I don't know when this started, though I do know that it has been intermittent for some time. I was hoping that the firmware updates that came a few weeks ago would fix the issue, but it seems to recently have gotten worse. I cannot pinpoint anything that would be causing this... and environmentally nothing has changed. The laptop is in near perfect condition from when I bought it, I keep it in a sleeve and a padded backpack when I'm not using it.. and unless I have something open that I am still working on I actually shut my laptop down whenever I'm not using it (living in Texas this is a habit I developed due to old laptops being damaged due to the heat build up in a trunk. I don't actually leave my MBP in the car though especially if it is hot out...)

MacBook Pro :: Display Takes A While To Wake From Sleep

Jun 3, 2014

I have noticed on my Macbook Pro purchased in September 2013 that the display will take a long time (~30sec) to awake from sleep.  I can see the mouse pointer on the dark screen but the monitor will not wake.  If I close the laptop, and open it, the screen will come back to life.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Black Screen With Pointer On Startup In It?

Mar 8, 2012

I have had to do hard restarts in Lion when it satrts up with a black scren and the mouse pointer and nothing else.  It happened most recently today with a scheduled wake up from being asleep. The other day it restarted with the pointer acting as a painting program and actually colored the path of the cursor until it eventually painted in enough of the login window to enter my password and log in... I have reinstalled the os from the App store and it still acts strange some times...

Mac Mini :: Does Not Wake From Sleep - Stays Black

Jul 2, 2012

I recently purchased a Mac Mini at the Apple store. I'm using an Apple bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. Problem is, when the mini goes to sleep, it won't wake back up. Nothing I can do apart from a hard restart by pressing the start button will wake the computer up. I don't know what to do to fix this. Is it something in settings?

Mac Pro :: Display Does Not Wake From Sleep Or Reboot

Feb 11, 2012

I have an Early 2008 Mac Pro with an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card.  Yesterday I could not get the display to wake from sleep in the morning, and even after a reboot I had nothing to look at.  Then I (eventually) moved the card to another PCI Express slot and everything worked!  Then after a reboot no video again. I moved the card back to slot one and it worked!  Rebooted again, no display.  Move card again, everything is fine.

MacBook Pro :: When Waking From "sleep" Screen Turns Grey Under The Pointer And The Computer Is Effectively Dead?

Mar 7, 2012

When waking from "sleep" the screen appears normal but, the pointer leaves a trail of grey as it moves and the whole screen will turn grey if I keep moving the pointer. The computer is effectively dead. Have to shut down by using power off for six seconds and then re-starting. I know little about computers!

MacBook :: Screen Intermittently Turning Itself Off And On / Sleep And Wake Occurring

Aug 8, 2010

I bought a new unibody Macbook around 4-5 months ago and I've generally been very impressed with it. It's my first Mac and considering all the problems I'd had before with Windows PC's, it's quite a relief.Anyway, here's the issue. When hooked up to my 24 inch Dell monitor there are numerous problems. Originally it just started with the screen intermittently turning itself off and on, and there being a sleep/wake issue. I did some research then and discovered that this was by no means a problem confined to me. Knowing this I was prepared to wait until Apple fixed it with a firmware update or something, as the problem was annoying but not devastating.

However since then the problem has got significantly worse. Not only are the screen flickering, sleep wake/issues occuring much more frequently, but there are other problems. For instance, the menu bar and the dock sometimes fail to show, and I've been having a very weird problem with the Logitech mouse I use. Even though I can move the cursor generally I can't click, and when I can, only the right mouse button works.The same is true with the trackpad, so it's not a problem with the mouse.

When these problems occur the system generally seems to be very slow. I've checked the 'activity monitor' and the use of 'system memory' seems to be very high. For instance, at the moment (I'm using my Macbook by itself) I'm running a few applications (Mail, iCal etc.) and I've got 1.09 gb of free memory. Last night I was running exactly the same applications and I must have had less than 0.4 gb of free memory. The pageout numbers were fairly high as well.

It's strange because when disconnected from the external monitor the Macbook seems to work seamlessly. I just don't understand how some of the problems I've experienced (such as the mouse issue) can arise from problems relating to the external monitor setup. What do you think? Should I be worried that these issues are perhaps indicative of a greater problem? Either way, the problems are becoming hard to deal with. Very disappointing.

Mac Pro :: Mac Pro Black Screen On Wake-up

Nov 25, 2010

Just got a new Mac pro and installed an SSD as the boot drive. I was downloading some apple software updates and left the machine alone to download for an hour.Came back and it was asleep or hibernating (is there a difference?)At that point I clicked the mouse and I could hear it start back up but NOTHING came on the screen, just black.I could press a key on the keyboard and hear the error type noise so the desktop was active, just not being displayed.

I disconnected my mini display port (I have a 24' Apple cinema LED display) and plugged it into the second mini display port on the back and it came back on.Anyone know what this could be?A result of an SSD boot drive or do I need my LED display plugging into a particular mini display port out of the 2 on the graphics card?

Mac Pro :: Black Screen And Can't Wake Up Then

May 30, 2012

I have a MacPro 1,1 (2006) 2.66GHz that it is always working as a home server.  

After some time working idle the screen goes black. When I want to wake up there is no response. The screen turns into safe energy mode blinking his LED light power indication. I have to force shutting down pushing phisically the power button for some seconds.  

Graphic Card problem? I have another one but I don't test it for now.   

I have made a PRAM reset and SMC reset shutting down the MacPro, unplug the power and push the power button for 10 seconds. No results at all. 

Even putting Energy System Preference on NEVER (computer sleep and screen) after some time (2-3hours) the MacPro goes to black screen.

IMac (Intel) :: Black Screen On Wake - OS X 10.9.3

Jun 1, 2014

This just started yesterday (May 31st). I keep everything updated as it comes out and nothing new has been installed in the last couple of days.

When I need I wake up my iMac (now requiring a keystroke or mouse press instead of just moving the mouse), the screen comes up black, but the cursor is there and moves around fine. 

It stays black for a while (15 seconds or longer, but it feels like forever) and then it finally comes up completely.

Mac Pro :: Pixelated Screen When Wake Up From Sleep Or Booting Up?

Sep 17, 2008

I'm on Mac Pro os x 10.5.4 and having a problem with my computer waking up from sleep or as it is booting up.

As it wakes up from sleep, the screen becomes blank or shows weird, pixelated bars all over the screen. When I try to move the mouse or press something on keypad, the computer freezes after and I would have to force shutting it down by pressing the power. It doesn't always happen, but quite often these days.

Also, when it's booting up, it sometimes will freeze with a blank screen in the middle and won't show the desktop.

Everything worked fine until a few days ago, and i'm wondering what's suddenly causing this problem.

IMac :: Screen Color Wake From Sleep

Apr 11, 2010

After my 27" i7 wakes up from a long sleep (roughly over 1.5 hours), something very odd goes on with my color profile and/or screen. Approx. 5 second or so after waking, the screen color appears to wash out quite a bit. You certainly have to be quick to notice it, but something is definitely going on.

Intel Mac :: Screen Corrupted After Wake From Sleep?

Jun 22, 2012

My screen on my 2 week old iMac comes up pixelated leaving square trails mimicking the movement of the mouse. I have had consultations twice with Apple support junior team members, looking forward to a senior team member reviewing my case. It looks like some sort of eraser wiping the blank dark screen revealing the login screen underneath.

Oh by the way my first iMac was sent back due to dead pixels, how unusual is that?

MacBook Pro :: Black Screen At Start Up And After Sleep

Apr 30, 2012

My macbook pro is only a month old, and I've done nothing to it besides write documents and use facebook. Every time I close the lid so the computer can "sleep" it does, but when I open the lid back up, it refuses to wake up. My friend has the same computer and automatically her screen lights up when she opens the lid from sleep. My screen will stay black up to 10 minutes sometimes. Why is this happening? Should I bring it in to Apple? Also, when I shut my computer down, starting it up is another hassel in itself. The screen goes white like it's suppose to, but only for a split second. The apple in the center never shows up, and the screen just goes black. It's very aggravating and I feel like I'm the one with the only messed up mac.
