    I just recieved my new powermac today and I used the setup assistant and everthing went well. Until, however, I noticed that the name of my new powermac is "ibook." Additionally, there is a battery icon where there should be.
    Forgive me for being such a clueless newbie, but how do I change the name of my powermac? I used to know how to do this because I did it on my ibook, but just can't seem to remember how. :eek:
    Thanks

    You can change the name of your computer through System Preferences/Sharing. As for that battery icon, just drag it out of your menu bar with the command key pressed.
