I only had this thing for a week now.  I'm using a 13" macbook pro and the display.  I put the machine to "sleep" mode at night and in the morning when I "wake" the computer, the screen flickers.  The only way I know to get it to stop is to do a restart.  I guess this is a common problem.  Any fixes/work arounds out there you might suggest?


Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Not a common problem - I know that I don't have it. I keep my 15" late 2011 connected to my Thunderbolt Display 90% of the time and let it 'sleep' when I sleep. Coming out of sleep, no flicker.


    I don't know what to tell you other than to take the whole kit to your local Apple Store or an AASP and show them what's happening. Could be a glitch in the hardware, as it's not supposed to 'flicker' on wake at all.


    Good luck,
