    Apple thinks there is no need for a button on the tower. Now I can't open or close the CD tray without the mouse. Via right click I can open it at least but to close it, I have to push the drawer, which I'm not a big fan of, as the machine is brand new and cost me 4k.

    What should I do?

    If you have an Apple Keyboard, simply use the eject key on the keyboard (provided you have used the Leopard DVD to install the drivers).

    I've tried to use it but it didn't work under Windows XP. It's the wireless one. It doesn't work too well under OS X either, so I bought one from Logitech. The keyboard works but not the Eject key. No drivers for Windows on the CD that came with it.

    I did however install the drivers from the Leopard DVD and tried to use an older Apple keyboard. Again the keyboard works but not the Eject key. Is there a way to manually make it work in XP?

    Found this Programm, works great. Not as convenient as a keyboard button but still very good.
    If anyone knows how to make the Eject button on a Mac keyboard work, I'd still love to know. Maybe a Logitech driver for another keyboard works.
