    hi, was playing around with my comp a fw months ago and now im having some trouble changing some of my settings again. apoligies as im sure these are easy to find, but somehow i just cant. ive searched through the syst prefs and help menus but no luck...

    1. on the dvd player, the controller used to fade out after it wasnt used for about 3seconds. at the moment it just vanishes after a few seconds: how do i get it so it fades off again??!

    2. my comp is set to shut-down at 2am and turn on at 2pm, all fine and dandy but i need to change it to waking up at 1pm. i cant find where to change it though. does anyone know?

    thanks alot guys and girls.

    1) DVD Player > Preferences > Windows > tick the "Fade Controller When Hiding" box

    2) System Prefs > Energy Saver > Schedule

    thanks.

    2) is sound as a pound.

    1) however, the box was already ticked. in the bottom of the window it says it requires quartz extreme?! whats the deal with this?
