I just noticed this today. There is a "ghost" apple on my screen when my computer goes to sleep. It is directly in the center of the screen. It looks like a grey spot that is barely visible, but when I looked very close today, It looked exactly like an apple logo, with the leaf and all. Anyone?

Turn your PowerBook around.

See that Apple logo there? That's what's causing it.

Light is simply shining through the Apple logo on the backside.

It looks even cooler if the sun is shining through it, in which case you can see it while the screen is on, like this:

LOL, I'm laughing with you though, as I spent a good chunk of time trying to figure out WTF that was myself initially. I was sitting somewhere where a stream of sunlight was hitting only the dead center of my powerbook, and there was this weird, almost circle like bit of light in the dead center of my screen.
