I got a fairly new MacBook Pro and I am quite happy with it. The only thing that keeps happening all the time and frustrates me is that Notifications appear greyed and not responsive (when clicking on it etc.) after i wake the Mac up from sleep. I use the MBP in Clamshell-Mode and hooked up to two external monitors and it does happen regularly but not every time after waking up.

Until now i keep using the terminal command

killall NotificationCenter

which does seem to help for some time.

Thank you all in advance and I hope there is a way to fix this.
