Question

Gray/brown ghost

I don't know how else to describe it.... several times when I have been away from my MacBook Pro and awakened it from "sleep," my cursor is at the corner of a gray/brown box that contains the area for my password. When I move the cursor, the box enlarges, or rather creates a trail of little boxes in the same color. It would end up filling the entire screen I believe if I continued. The only cure I've found is to press the power button to turn it off. Any idea what is causing this? As usual, thanks.....

Thanks, Bob, I have changed my settings to "disable log out," and will see if it works...... if it don't, you can bet the farm I will be back. I had nightmarish visions of having a rare Mac virus. <shudder> You guys are the greatest.

It sounds oddly familiar and if it's that logout/login thing that should help.

Some folk today think these things are perfect. "Surprise!"
