    The bluetooth keyboard/mouse disconnect when you boot into Windows is not fixed. The dual monitor flip is not fixed. The constant buzzing of the power supply is not fixed...what's up?

    It is the drivers that need to be updated. Leopard did not come with new drivers for Windows as of yet, only the ability to create and remove a Windows partition.

    I already updated the drivers from the Leopard DVD (The partition that only shows up under Windows).

    Is there any documentation to show they are different from the ones for Tiger? As far as I know, they are the same.

    I think something is different because it wouldn't reinstall the same drivers on top of each other?

    Anyways, Apple needs to fix this stuff...they were happy to support Windows, but now they need to make it work right.

    Maybe try installing them again and see if they will install over themselves. I'm pretty sure they are still the same drivers from before.

    They do need to fix the bluetooth bugs especially, but they have done a nice job with some of the other stuff.

    Yeah it's not bad considering that Windows is not supposed to run on a Mac...but they already have one foot in the puddle, so they have to do what's right.

    You can't restart from Windows and go back to windows...I've sent a few of these bugs to bootcamp@apple.com

    I recommend you guys bombard them with emails too.

    I don't really use Windows enough to really put that much effort into the whole deal. The biggest problem is I'll get a random restart every once and awhile...
