Make sure the MCP altitude is set to your step altitude, or your cruise alt. Does the CDU display a message saying "Reset MCP Alt"?

Yeah, I made sure it was set to the cruise altitude on departure. On the arrival descent, it never gave me an indication of RESET MCP ALT. I've had that message before though.

Ok. I've had that happen a few times in the 737 full flight sim, too. It's something I'm not thinking of. It's very intuitive when you see it, but when I'm not sitting in front of it, it's hard to imagine. You had a cruising alt selected in the FMC, right? I presume you did, but just figured I'd ask. If you haven't figured it out by Monday, I'll hop in the sim and figure out if there's anything I can point out that may help. I know a 73 is not the same as a 77, but a Boeing is a Boeing and the logic is largely the same.
