    I downloaded Sleepless onto my new macbook pro 13", then I deleted it but theres a small window that keeps popping up telling me to register for SleepLess.

    It says : "Please, support shareware and register SleepLess for only $9.50. Select "Register..." item from SleepLess menu and click "Purchase..." button."

    Please help!

    there's obviously some part of the program still there. You'll need to search around to find it.

    Pull up console, and see what it says at the time you get the popups. It should tell you what process is causing it. Then, hunt down the file using spotlight and delete it. It's more than likely in application support or something. Maybe Launchdaemons.

    Well now that you know what it is, kill it in activity monitor, then try to delete it again. Or, if it's already in the trash, go to system preferences -> accounts and make sure it's not a login item, and just restart your computer. Then try to empty trash again. If it still refuses to empty, a secure empty trash will do the job.

    Obviously, make sure it's the correct thing you're trying to delete. I'd suggest doing a backup before going through with deleting it.
