second monitor too dark after waking from sleep

  • Type: Incorrect Functionality
  • Version Tested: 1.2b3 (Universal)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.6
  • Status: Open


New MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard. I have an external monitor connected. When I close the laptop and then open it to wake from sleep my external monitor is far, far too dark. Putting the slider to 100% for the external monitor still doesn't recover all the brightness. Stopping and restarting Shades "recalibrates" the external monitor's brightness.

Fix: Putting my MBP to sleep shouldn't affect the brightness of my external monitor when I wake it up.

I am having the exact same problem. I'm sure others are having the same problem but not reporting it. Or maybe they don't you an external monitor.. Can this be updated? Thanks..

Easy fix, you lazy arse-holes. just take the DVI out whenever putting your macbook to sleep!

This guys dumb man, whose got the time to take the DVI out each time. The software should be efficient for it to detect when the macbook is going to sleep.

I have the same problem with my external monitor, after my MBP has been at sleep.
