    Oh yeah, I was gonna mention a while back...

    If you have an iMac and Vista (Beta 2 and RC1), then go into your Energy (power?) Control Panel and change the performance from 'balanced' to 'more performance'. It seems Vista thinks the iMac is a laptop and tries to conserve its non-existent battery.

    Yes, I think most people realize that the iMac has a laptop motherboard, however some people may not know that the default setting is balanced power/performance, which they should change.
