Hi everyone. I'm running an up-to date SnowLeopard 10v (2gb, no bt
). Sometimes when I wake the computer up I find that the screen is completely black except for the mouse cursor. The cursor works perfectly and tracks as expected, but Finder/Dock/my apps are nowhere to be found. The only way I know to fix this is to either hard power down the computer or ssh in and issue the "shutdown" command. Putting the computer to sleep and waking it up again doesn't seem to do anything, and hitting the power button to bring up the sleep dialog box doesn't work.
Any suggestions you guys have would be very much appreciated. I wouldn't say this happens terribly often, maybe 1 or 2 out of every 10 times I sleep -- sometimes less, sometimes a lot more. I haven't found any other common element. I've been using the same setup since December when I bought the netbook brand new from BestBuy, and it's been happening since day one.
I use a USB wireless mouse, but always remove it before I close the lid on the machine, in case you think that might be a factor.
Hopefully this isn't something that's been covered already -- I did a cursory search but nothing obvious came up.
