For the past several months, due to being too busy to do anything about it, I've been experiencing problems with my mac pro. To start things off, no matter how my energy settings are set, the computer will not fall asleep. Also, even if I manually put it to sleep, it will eventually somehow wake up on its own. Second, fans. I don't know if my fans don't run correctly, but this sucker runs HOT. I notice high temps when I use iStat Pro, so I installed SMC fan control and cranked up the fans. But I'd rather just have my fans work correctly and I've heard that once you start using SMC fan control your computer's SMC can't control the fans (so you have to keep using it). Third, Safari will NOT stay in the dock. Ever. This probably came from a problem with .Mac syncing my dock items (although I've kept Safari in the dock on all my Macs). The only remedy I had was to make an alias and then use a Terminal tweak to remove the "alias arrow" on the icon. I'm not sure when these started, it just seems like they've piled up. I want to just wipe my computer clean, but I'm worried about losing important things that I may overlook. I have Time Machine back up everything, but I'm afraid to restore from a Time Machine backup because I think it would have all the messed up system settings (which could be the cause of the problems). If I wipe the drive (which is 250GB), could I instead install my system to my other drive (320GB) if I put it in Bay 1, then use Time Machine to put all the files back... can I choose to only transfer files that are: 1) not applications and 2) not system files? Also, would it be worth it to call up Apple? Could this be somehow linked to any other problems with the system?
