Hi. I’m having the same issue–the screen goes black (with the white dot) when I exit the emulators. Happens more often when I’ve been playing longer, and my .srm files don’t seem to update at all unless I exit the emulator completely back to Emulationstation.

I’m going to try the autosave suggestion as a temporary fix. Sorry I don’t have anything useful to add, but I wanted to get in on the thread for the updates in case anyone can solve this problem.
