    Default Black Screen

    every once in a while my screen turns black for a second. It seems like its about to go to sleep or screen saver mode, all black and quickly restores to the original screen. All prefs are in never mode. Any ideas why this thing keep happening? Thanks

    No hot corners. One time I saw it turned black by itself and just after a second it turn back on. TY

    Could trash sleep prefs, in case they are wonky, and SMU/SMC controls sleep. PRAM reset, SMU/SMC reset is worth a shot.
