I use an LG 5k USB-C monitor with a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) closed on my desk, so the 5K monitor is normally my only display.

When I disconnect from the monitor and open the laptop, I am often presented with a very weird and colorful display with a lot of purple and red replacing normal colors. If I can find and quit Iris mini--have to sort of click around in the status bar and hope I can find it, it's hard to really make anything out--the colors recover and then I can re-start Iris mini and it will work normally again.

Next time I see it I will take a picture to add to this.
