    So I just re-installed my brand new Intel iMac in order to re-partiton it, and remove some software etc..., and now Date & Time takes Forever to open (35 Sec or more) everything else in System Prefs works fine, and my iSight doesn't work, evey time I try to use it it says "It is in use by another application" even though it is not, even after a restart, and the first program I open is Photobooth it still doesn't work. Any Ideas

    EDIT: While typing this thread I noticed if I uncheck "Set Date & Time Automatically" then it opens perfectly fine, any thoughts?

    EDIT2: I just tried pinging time.apple.com, and got upwards of 90-100Ms mabye that is the problem? Mabye their time server is messed up or something? I'll see if it's still doing it tommorrow.

    Fixed the iSight, I found this page at Apple http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93216, which said I should unplug the firewore cable and plug it back in, which is impossible since I have an iMac, so I shut it down compleatly insted of re-strting and it works now. Hmm Still up for thoughts on the Date & Time problem?
