comment How to fix a MacBook Pro display that turns off?
Thanks Neil. 1. Yep all fine on others, 2. Not apple Dell, how can I check the drivers? I have checked for updates and there are none so far, 3. no changes that I know of, 4. no errors, just switches off both the monitor and my laptop, after which the laptop seems to be 100% unresponsive, 5. Its got a fan, its been a great monitor, but since the laptop also turns off I don't think its an issue with the monitor, 6. It hasn't happened so far on the windows bootcamp. Where can I check for logs etc.?

sorry for being vague, when it happens there is no error, simply just switches off both on the external (non-apple) monitor and the laptop also screns also turns off. At this point on the external monitor I do get the "no signal" message and the laptop "seems" to be unresponsive.
