now for the problems....


1) cant get "About this mac" to stop logging me out.

2) i have numerous spontaneous crashes and when they start, they take every app im using one after another. especially yahoo, firefox, quicktime, the dock and iTunes

3) sound works great and i can use my mic but i cant get my audio to show up in any hardware pages (system profiler says "no built-in audio)

4) video card shows as PCI instead if AGP.

5) i dont have control over the bluetooth power.... if its off, i cant just turn it on, i have to go to the bluetooth file exchange wizard to get it to power on by it asking me if i want to turn it on.

6) iCal doesnt work at all...

7) USB doesnt auto mount my thumb drives.. i have to manually restart to get them to show up.

thats it!!


other than that. i love leopard. like i said.. all of the hardware works right outta tha box, sleep, all the power functions work, and its very fast!


one last question. when i installed leo, i clicked the mac pro button because my system was a tower/monitor setup but ive read that that has something to do with "smbios".. mabey i screwed up, what kind of mac would my system be comparable to?


thanks guys ive learned a lot reading here and this is my first post (i think) so lets get those comments in! im shooting for the most stable OSX86 install evarrr! lol.
