When I click off the selection in CS5, the selection goes away just like CS4 and previous versions.

Again, it is working just fine for me in CS5. In CS4 and CS5, clicking outside of the marquee deselects, just the same as using the context menu.

(also, you might want to spend a few minutes reading the Photoshop credits)

What OS are you on? Is Photoshop and the OS up to date? http://adobe.ly/PS-Up-To-Date

It may be graphics card related. Determine what video card you have and go directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD) and download the latest driver.

This has such a simple answer you lunkheads. You need to click on "New Selection" for the marquee tool in the toolbar. Wow.
