Anybody else experiences the same?


What happened:

1. Updated to OSX Lion.

2. Now everytime I'm not connecting it to the power adapter, sooner or later the screen flickers and it crashes or freezes straight away.

3. It's usually caused when I'm using the browser to open a flash site, which is probably heavy on graphic processing.

4. Or watching a video on quicktime or youtube, even when it's not using a flash player on youtube.

5. Or working on a graphic heavy processing apps like Photoshop.


It's updated with latest software updates.


But still the same.


Any help would be appreciated.
