    SMS is a listed feature for the MBP, but does it actually work? None of the utilities which demonstrate it (AMSVisualizer, StableWindow etc) react to any change in the Mac's attitude (so to speak).

    Someone mentioned in a thread that SMS stopped working in 10.4.3, but it's hard to know if the feature itself doesn't work, or is it just the public api's these utilities rely upon.

    Pity, I was looking forward to seeing this in action.

    It's listed in the System Profiler too I've heard.

    Yup, it's there and listed as enabled.

    But none of those utilities (I think there was at least one game too) work, which is a pity.

    (Just bumping this as more people probably have their MBPs now and might have tried this.)

    Has anyone been able to get any of the SMS game/utilities to work on the MBP?
