    Thanks for the head up. I wonder if this is the solution to the blinking-external-monitor-after-sleep problems some Alu Macbooks have.

    Aside from the NVIDIA Graphics Update, I also got an iLife Media Browser update.

    I think that uses the NVidia 9400M chip, not the 9600M chip that the update addresses. Not sure though...

    Funny, the link he provided is not working. (BTW, the update doesn't apply to my MacBook since I don't have the NVIDIA chips)

    You can check if it applies to you here. But please check first if your graphics chip is the 9400M, since I'm not sure if that is addressed by this update.

    I updated my macbook together with the other 2 updates.
    I can't recall them, but I think they're iLife (iDVD) 08 related updates ....

    ;)

    Can't find any problem so far, because
    I don't use the mini display port as of the moment :D
    ( fixed module of the update on a macbook )
