I just got a new Macbook Pro w/4GB RAM and would think that it could do everything very fast. What it can't do, either on restarting or waking from sleep, is find a wireless connection. I have the same problem everywhere I go: it takes 2:15, which, in geologic time, is how long it takes a glacier to melt, to find a connection. It's definitely this computer, because my old Powerbook connected almost instantly in the same locations. I tried zapping my PRAM. That did nothing. My company's IT guy looked at it and said that something got corrupted when I moved the files from my old PB, and supposedly he ran some fix-it program and took care of the problem. Only it didn't, and now he's out of town for a week. If it means anything, it also takes about 4 minutes to run Disk Utility on this computer, whereas it usually tool <20 secs on the Powerbook. Quoting the Fly in an urgent but pathetic voice, "help me. helllppp meeee..." Thanks in advance.
