    My MacBook, but in the first week of release, has started Mooing since the 10.4.7 update. Incredible! It never did this before. Anyone else have this happen.

    Now I know, the Mooing is indeed annoying.

    I wonder if there's the ability to raise the fan's turn on measure a few degrees higher. I hear the moo is related to the fan so....shouldn't they be able to make a firmware patch/program that makes the fan run for 5 minutes (brings the Macbook temp down a significant amount), and then cut off rather than just cut it off at a certain temp?

    Here is the fix that Apple gave me...

    Disconnect power.
    Remove battery.
    Hold down power button for more than 5 seconds.
    Reinsert battery and reconnect power.
    Boot.

    So far, so good. They told me that this resets the power management system.

    I will post again if it fails. For anyone who has this MOO problem, you might give it a try, especially if you developed the problem with 10.4.7

    If this works, it should go on the MR front page.

    I agree. Has anyone else tried this? It would be great to see that this works.

    If this works for others, I wanna be a Demi-God LOL.

    But seriously, after almost 50 minutes, no more Moo. If this fixes MBs that were born with Mooing in their blood, then Apple has really given us something here.

    I was amazed that the 10.4.7 taught mine to Moo.

    I just figured that this belonged under help. Hopefully they will delete this thread.

    Out of curiousity, when did you upgrade? Apparently (according to AppleInsider) there is a NEW new version of 10.4.7 for intels that is being released (or perhaps has been released already... I am at work so cannot check). Here is the link -http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=1852

    I got it within 30 minutes of its release I think. Anyway, it was 133MB, so I think it was okay.
