    Sorry, can't help... I must be living in Bizarro world.

    With Leopard I had tons of issues that everyone else denied ever having.
    With SL I'm having none of the issues everyone else is having.

    It installed without a glitch, it runs without a single glitch, all my apps appear to be compatible except LCC, battery life is excellent, no crazy fan noise, no performance issues, no network issues, no graphical glitches... what can I say, I finally have a working Mac OS X. I can finally auto-mount my NAS drives via Login Items without getting runaway CPU usage. My NAS drives finally show up automatically in Finder without having to disable the firewall. And to top it off I finally have a working Boot Camp with proper Windows 7 drivers and HFS access.

    I haven't had any major issues but the little things bug me.. I am a serious perfectionist.. who loves to swap icons and can't so annoyed!!!

    I also sent a few apps to my mom through iChat that wouldn't open after download.. worked perfectly before the upgrade. :confused:

    1) System is slower. Especially when I have an opengl app running (WoW, Blender). With a windowed opengl app, other apps are really slow. Safari freezing with the beachball, crashing.

    2) The fan in my MBP has been kicking on much more often than it ever did with Leopard.

    3) Battery life not as good as before.

    I wonder... maybe OpenCL is in use and taxing the video card more? Maybe there a way to disable it?
