Why isn't automatic .mac sync really automatic?

    I have set both my work and home computer to sync my iCal and Address Book automatically. From the menu bar I can see that my computers are syncing but unless I hit Sync Now some data doesn't always come through in the automatic snyc, even if the last automatic sync was just before I manually do it.

    Is this a bug or is something funky going on with my sync?

    It's a bug and it happens to me too. I dunno how to fix it other than manually syncing the data every now and then. :(

    this has happened to me each time - spanning from Jaguar to 10.4.8 with .mac.

    The only way I can get a complete sync is to sync it on my mac (via my mac) then reset the sync via the web .mac - if you know what I mean. One click syncing .... yeah right...you have to sync it both ends.
