I forget what the problems were, but here's how to troubleshoot a computer:
Test in a new user.
If the issue occurs in a new user account, the issue is system-wide and a reinstallation of the operating system or hardware service may be required.
If the issue is user specific,
There is likely a file in ~/Library/Preferences which is causing the problem. Remove the folder and test.
If a reinstallation of the operating system does not resolve the issue, hardware repair is required.
If removing ~/Library/Preferences does not resolve the issue, remove everything in ~/Library except for Application Support.
I have had exactly the same issues. With the 'Aurora' desktop there are uneven, blotchy color areas, especially around the center. When I try other desktop themes it seems to go away.
Also, the problem with the MP in the sleep mode is something that happens fairly frequently. I do have to press the start button to shut it down and then restart.
My laptop is only 8 mos. old and I have an Apple Care Protection Plan. Should I call them? Do I have to completely delete and reload my OS?
