    I just upgraded to a new mac. I am trying to listen to sirius online while i work. If i listen to it in safari the display never goes to sleep/screensaver doesnt launch. If i listen to it in firefox the application shuts down when the screensaver comes on. This has never happened to me before on my old iMac g5. Is there a setting i have to tweek?

    Is it going into sleep mode, or just the screensaver? Your MB might go into sleep mode after X minutes of inactivity?

    Download SiriusMac from

    http://www.siriusmac.com/

    You won't have to listen using Safari anymore and its much easier to use. Enjoy.

    Ummm.. yeah. You have to be a Sirius subscriber to listen to Sirius digital radio, whether online or on a receiver.

    I test-drove both, and liked StarPlayr better than SiriusMac.

    Well, actually I couldn't get SiriusMac to work at all, so I don't know if that's a good comparison or not.
