I've got one of these lovely, solid Alu powerbooks, thats is proving a great machine, but... I have had a niggling problem that bugs me more than it being a terminal problem: 1) Running XBench (I know, I Know) renders lower performance figures for my Hard Drive than any posted on the site. I only got the 4200rpm drive, and may upgrade it to a faster drive when the warranty is out, but I -really- notice swap delays on this machine. 2) The Hard drive is -always- active, and never sleeps. I have 768Mb RAM, and if not running any apps, I would have thought there would be room to spin down occasionally! Various disk tools report no problems with the drive, and even Activity Monitor reports no disk access when I can patently hear the head moving repaeatedly... so whats up? any ideas?
