Problem with Powerbook when waking up external display

Message #1 - Posted 2005/11/25 - nahorniak

This is my setup at work:
- Brand new 17" Powerbook.
- 23" Apple Cinema display.
- Bluetooth mouse
- Keyboard plugged into the monitor, which is plugged into the Powerbook.

I have the display hooked up to my Powerbook just fine and it works wonderfully. My problem arises when the external display goes to sleep after an hour. I have it set so the machine never shuts down, just the display. When I move the mouse around to wake it up, the spinning wheel appears, I can move it around, but the actual desktop never reappears. It seems to be getting stuck on something.

Has anyone experienced this?

Thanks in advance!
