    I remember seeing posts where people kept complaining that their macbook pro wouldn't wake up from sleep and istat08 caused it. Has a patch or something come out to fix that or is it still causing problems?

    I have the issue you're talking about. It happens only with the iStat Pro widget, but not iStat Menu. For those of you who don't know, seems like a bunch of you don't, it's been causing some sleep issues for some people.

    So when I put my MBP to sleep it would take about 2mins to wake up again. Remove iStat and voila speedy wake up, install and 2min sleep again, uninstall and voila.

    Edit: I tried the latest iStat Pro a few days ago and it still had the issue. Using Mac OS X 10.5.2.

    I use the iStat widget every day and it causes no problems for me on Leopard.

    Give it a shot and see what happens. The worst that can happen is that you have to uninstall it afterall.

    Works perfect in my opinion. iStat Menu is great if you want to monitor certain activity without opening widgets.

    It seems that iSlayer has finally figured out what's wrong (go to page 3) and should be releasing a updated version soon!
