I have been using Mac laptops for the past few years and yesterday bought my first desktop, a 1.42gHz Mac Mini, 512MB RAM, 80gig HD, SuperDrive, AP, BT, wireless keyboard/mouse set. Anyway, just a few questions about some differences in using a Mac desktop vs. iBook. Searched the forums but came up with nothing. 1) How do I make the energy star menu bar thing go away?? It just says no batteries available and I don't want this to be cluttering my menu bar. I looked through the entire System Preferences and cannot find it anywhere. 2) Anyone else ever buy a Apple Wireless Keyboard and get dead batteries in the box?? I had to use my own. Not like its a big deal but after spending all this money, I would have liked them to work. I think I will call Apple tomorrow and ask about this. 3) I also got the DVI to S-video adapter. Is this thing able to use both the outputs that are on it?? I am using the composite now to my TV in the living room but was wondering if I could get the Mini to do dual displays with another TV. Thanks for the help in advance. BTW, the Mini is a great little machine. Makes me want to get a G5 as well now. Darn you Apple and your kick-a$$ computers!!! I need more money!!!
