I am running OSX Lion 10.7.5 (can't upgrade yet due to corp policy) on my MBP 13" 2011. I run with the lid closed connected to two displays:
- HP 24" via DisplayPort/DVI adapter
- Dell 24" via Diamond BVU195 USB/DVI adapter
Problem: Intermittently, when I go to lock my screen (an Automator app that starts the screen saver), the screen saver won't start. If I unplug the DisplayLink from the USB port, this instantly fixes the issue. I can then reconnect the DisplayLink and the screen saver appears on both screens simultaneously. Likewise, sometimes when I return to my desk and go to unlock my screen, the display hangs; it's black on both screens with visible mouse cursor but no image. If I unplug the DisplayLink, again this immediately fixes the issue.
I've made sure I'm on the latest DisplayLink driver. What else can I do to fix this so I don't have to frequently disconnect the DisplayLink device?
