    I have a new IMAC with SL and when I watch ESPN 360 I have to switch it to 32 bit mode. Can I leave it in 32 bit mode or should I switch it back after the game? I am sure it has to do with certain programs and I do not have anything unusual on my computer.

    Switch what to 32-bit mode?

    Safari? Some ESPN app? Or the whole computer?

    If it's the whole computer, then you should know that 64-bit OS X can run 32-bit apps just fine (such as iTunes, Firefox, and Adium which are running right now as I write).

    If it's Safari, you better put it back in 64-bit after as it's faster and more stable in the 64-bit version.

    It's Safari you have to switch to 32 bit to watch ESPN. You answered my question.
