  1. the newer is faster. i'm not sure how old you are talking about, keep in mind that some of the higher clocked i7's were only dual core. ah, you got 8 gigs of ram, that must take a few min... 8 gig's is a bit of a overkill in my opinion. my desktop has 12gigs, and even under heavy use i couldn't go over 50% usage out of it. i really had to load all my graphical apps with gigantic(unreal and unpractical size) canvas just to do this.
  2. I think you are mistaken there... recovering from hibernate bypass all driver loading that happens on a normal startup. I just timed it and hibernate recover took 32 seconds. normal startup is WAY longer. I do not have a SSD. In terms of time, Stanby < Hibernate < Cold Boot.
  3. Just Hibernate instead of Standby. Hibernate mode doesn't take too long to boot back up (SSD or HDD) and uses zero battery once shut off
  4. IT WORKS!!! and it's Glorious. now that this works, get the Switchable graphix turned on!! One thing to note tho, if you are running Ubuntu Live CD: 1. no need to unmount anything as it should already be on boot. 2. the commands are: cd /medias/USBSTICKNAME dd if=/dev/sda of=backup.bin bs=512 count=1 dd if=patchedcode.bin of=/dev/sda bs=440 count=1 reboot now and to restore if it didn't work: dd if=backup.bin of=/dev/disk0 bs=440 count=1 Originally tried it on /dev/sda0 and it gave me a prompt with the letter I and a blinking cursor...
  5. Is anyone working on getting the switchable graphics to load in Boot Camp? It'll be nice to run INTEL Drivers for most of the time when using MBP. Such a shame that Boot Camp drivers do not support or even show the Intel HD card under device list in Windows.
  6. The overheating issue I was referring to was while you were in boot camp
  7. I have the "old" MBP running 2.4 C2D with Nvidia 8600M GT. I've configured to a point where everything is working extremely well in boot camp. I can: - Remap all keys using Input Remapper, switch Fn and Cnt key - Change Fan Speed - Use Widcomm Bluetooth Stack to support better BT profiles - Allow Hibernation, LCD Monitor Shutoff after x Min - Remap Remote Control controls using EventGhost - Control Keyboard Backlight Does any of this work in the NEW Unibody version? in XP and Vista? Please confirm if you actually have it working. I'm not looking for someone's theory about how it could work or couldn't. I'm just pondering on if I should replace my old one with the unibody version. And any other issues that have not been resolved. I've been reading a lot on the Overheating issues and what not. has any of this been addressed yet? Thanks in Advance.

    When is 1.05 coming out?

    I must check this site like everyday! any updates on updates??
  10. Beliyaal, Here are my current findings about this strange flicker problem. It is definitely is related to the "Automatically control screen backlight / keyboard backlight." To reproduce the problem, you must have: - Screen Backlight Min to 0 - Screen Sensor Min to 0 - The rest has to be set to 100 Other settings will let you reproduce, but having these settings will actually show you a much more noticable result when it flickers... It will actually turn off the backlight for about 300ms? and you will also see the keyboard light up for that duration. Furthermore, if you have the Mac Book Settings open, you'll be able to see your Light Sesor Left and Right hit 0 and come back up Strange indeed, and i'm sure it does have something to do with apples poorly written System Management Controller driver for XP. I also wonder if this is the reason for failure to playback videos and 3D application acceleration after coming back from hibernation under bootcamp... hope you get to reproduce it Beliyaal... Thanks again for this awesome app...
  11. FEATURE Request... I've actually been using InputRemapper to Emulate LCD ShutOff when the LID is closed on my MBP MBP+Nvidia8600 has an issue under bootcamp where LCD does not shut off when the lid is closed. So therequest is, 1 button LCD + Keyboard Shut off / Wake up macro...this way if i'm going to sleeep or something, I can just press fn+f10 (as an example) and to that again in the morning to wake it back up. Thanks Beliyaal.... yer program rocks.
  12. As far as I know, there are no solutions to any of these... YET... I am currently encountering a problem that seems to be non driver related but... perhaps bootcamp related. Here are the symptoms... Setting the power settings to "Do Nothing" when closing the lid of my laptop does not shut off builtin LCD Display. Nvidia 8600M for some reason fails to play video when coming out of hibernation. It works perfectly fine when it soft/hard boots. And when the "Nvidia Control Panel" is launched (where it displays the spinning logo and quality slider) it leaves artifacts all over the monitor in a "spread out annoying pattern." Like above, coming out of hibernation also disables iSight. Going to USB Video Device from My Computer shows a black screen. Interestingly enough, clicking on "Take a New Picture" does save a new picture as it should have. I do a lot of work in Photoshop, and when I have multiple large files open, I much prefer hibernating my Win XP over saving everything... can anyone confirm the above issues? I've left some threads on 3 forums, and while all of them are showing 50+ number of views I have 0 responses... I did get a confirmation from makel.org that these problems exist on MBP with Nvidia 8600m. Also, the video problem exists on any drivers I load, it only seems to fail after resuming from hibernation... Can anyone else confirm?? and are there any solutions?? Thanks in advance...

    Bootcamp + MBP + Windows XP

    I cannot find a good Bootcamp thread anywhere! Since most of the users on this thread probably is runing Bootcamp... As far as I know, there are no solutions to any of these... YET...
