My Macbook keeps switching between two screens.  I am unable to get work done because it does this automatically without me even touching the computer.  If I restart the computer it will stop for a while.  But eventually the screen switching begins again.


Does anyone know about this issue and/or does anyone know of a resolution?


Thank you.

    In System Preferences > Mission Control, uncheck first three items. If not dashboard related, please describe what it is switching between in more detail.

    Thank you Power-PC.


    I initially thought of this solution, however, I realized it does not apply.  I am not touching the computer at all.  No F-keys are being touched at all, nor is the computer being touched at all.


    Basically I can be in any application, internet, or my Desktop.  Suddenly Mission Control wants to slide in.  Before I can even hit the button at the bottom of Mission Control it switches back to the original screen.  Not too long after that the screen switching becomes more aggressive (for a lack of better words) and just quickly goes from original screen and Mission Control...back and forth, back and forth.  Stop for a brief moment, then continues between original screen and Mission Control...back and forth, back and forth.


    It is very odd behavior and cannot explain it.  Any idea with this additional information?

    This glitch seems related to Google Drive.  Disable the Google Drive "Show sync status" option in Google Drive prefs.
