I'm going to schedule a genius bar appointment, but want to get a discussion going in case this ends up being a widespread problem.  I am getting severe artifacts on the Retina Display after waking from sleep.  This has occurred twice in the last 24 hours.


The interesting thing is that I can capture them via a  screen shot, so I don't think it is purely the video card crapping out but rather further down the chain.  If I adjust the screen scaling, things get mostly better, but there are still some remnants in the launcher and menu bar.




After changing scale to best and back:


I generally keep it one setting above Best as depicted in the second screen shot.


The first time it occurred, I was running several apps including Steam, so I dismissed it as a potential compatibility issue.  This last time it happened with only Apple apps running (Safari, Mail, Terminal and Activity Monitor).


Hope this isn't happening to anyone else, but let me know, if it is.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 16GB Ram
