On Lion I used to see the next space wallpaper while pressing Control + to switch desktops. But on Mountain Lion I see a Black Screen until the transition is complete. Is it just me who is facing this issue or is this the new behaviour in Mountain Lion?

  • That's not the intended behavior. Does it happen on other accounts or a guest account?

  • This is currently happening on my main admin account. I will try creating other account and report back in a minute :)

  • Happened to me in OSX El Capitan. The cause was 'Console'. Closed it and the black screen vanished.

Its now resolved. It was not an issue with OSX. I was using a software called ScreenShade which was causing this issue. Disabling ScreenShade resolved the issue.
