I have an Apple Multi-scan monitor.  When I first turn it on or wake it up from sleep mode, it has a very yellow hue to it.  As it warms up, it begins blinking to the correct color.  After 15 minutes, it is fine.  Any ideas?

Some of the components in it are slowing failing.  In this case, the red circuitry is lagging the green and blue.  If it a new   monitor, get it fixed/replaced under warranty.  If it's older, leave it alone until it dies and then replace it.  Monitor repairs out of warranty are usually quite expensive.

I've had a monitor doing the same thing for years now.  I just leave it on all the time and never notice it unless there's a power failure or something.
