Before I start, some basic background information: I use a Dell monitor with my laptop (MBP 2.16 dual core with 10.5.1) and often I run a single screen set up with an external keyboard and mouse. Here's what happened: My laptop was "open" when I plugged the monitor's DVI in and it went into a dual screen setup. I closed my laptop and naturally, it went to sleep. It's somewhat difficult for me to wake it up after doing so (which is why I prefer plugging in my monitor when my laptop is already closed) because it requires some random button pressing and mouse clicking to wake it up. When my laptop woke up, I found that through my random button mashing, I accidently rewrote the name of the Application folder in my Home folder. This is not the Application folder you find in Systems. This is the "shortcut" folder in Home that takes you to the actual folder and well, I broke that shortcut. When I click on it, I get a empty folder. I don't know how to fix it or how serious this error is since that folder is not quite an alias. My other folders (Documents, Movies, etc) works just fine so... EDIT: I did rename it back to Applications, but no cigar. Any other ideas?
