Hey everybody. I've been lurking around this site for over a year and finally decided to buy a powerbook a week and a half ago. I was really excited about completely switching over to the mac platform, and to do away with all the crashes and annoyances of Windows. Unfortunately, so far, my experience has been less than stellar. Don't get me wrong. Panther is far better than my old HP Windows 2000 computer. All the Ilife suite has been great to play with, and Garageband is especially nice for my music. What has surprised me, though, is how much trouble OSX has given me since I got my powerbook last Friday. Minor Problem: I got a kernel panic yesterday. I couldn't believe OSX crashed within a week of me using it. I should note here, before I continue, that I ordered and extra 512 stick of RAM from Crucial. I don't, however, believe it was the RAM's fault, because it only happened that one time. Still though, very surprising. The bigger problem: Who here turns off their computer every night before they go to sleep? Yeah, me neither. I'm sure most of you heard of the sleep problem some of the G5's have had with the new update, but I'm afraid to say it isn't limited to them. Whenever my computer goes to sleep, it can't wake up. If I try to turn it on, the hard drive will start working, and the fans will kick in, but the screen remains black. I was so afraid the computer was dead, I almost fainted. Has anyone here experienced any of these problems, or have any advice on how to fix anything?
