I was having problems with my 1 year old powerbook. In the last three months whenever I unplugged my powerbook from the wall it would go to sleep. I did the usual hardware tests and all that stuff and nothing came up. I even took it to Apple and they said to send it in. The problem is that I am a full time student with a full time job so I sort of need this computer. This problem only happens while plugged into an external display. (dell 2005FPW) It started about 8-10 weeks after I bought the dell LCD. It never did it with my NEC 21" CRT..and it didn't happen with the LCD for the first couple of months. I decided to clone my hard drive onto an external which copied my home folder. I did a fresh install of Tiger and then tried to copy my home folder back where it said I needed to be logged in as root. I figured out how to do that, logged in as root, copied my home folder to my drive and logged out. Logged in as a regular user I found that I could not access anything as it said I didn't have permission. I am annoyed beyond belief and I am in need of help. I don't know what to do to get my home folder back to me where I can use it and get off this root account (because it's generally unsafe). However, I can't do anything on the other account...even Safari won't work. PS If anyone knows why I am also having that dang power issue then I'd be happy to hear some suggestions. I have already done the battery reboot and reset the ram etc etc.
