    After upgrading to Tiger I noticed some anti-improvements in my powerbook which to some extent, have been fixed by 10.4.2. With Panther my pbook was asleep about 1 second after closing the lid, but with Tiger that grew to about 8 seconds, but now it is back to 1 after this update. Tiger also made the laptop MUCH slower connecting to external displays and especially when changing between mirroring modes. I would press the F7 mirroring key and often wait about 20 seconds with Tiger for it to change, but have not tested again after this update.

    That's good to hear. My iBook sleeps before I close the lid, and it has ever since Panther. :confused:
