When I pull out the cable for my external display (connected via VGA>Mini display port) 90% of the time my computer hard locks and I have to hold down the power button to reboot. For some reason I'm still able move my mouse, but I can't interact with anything when it freezes. I've already re-installed the OS several times to no avail (I kept my personal files).


Mid-2010 MacBook Pro

OSX 10.8.2

2.4 Ghz Intel Core i5

8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 (Kingston, 3rd party)


Also I have this problem where if I come out of sleep to the login screen and then don't click anything for a bit my screen will go pure white until I click/use the keyboard, which brings me back to the login screen. Not sure if related.


Thanks in advance for the help.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
