    While doing the restart to complete installation of 10.5.2 my power went out and things arent working to well. My imac rebooted fine but now it shows that my system is up to date but none of the new features are working and seems they didnt install correctly because of the outage. The new stacks wont work as well as the Time machine menu bar option. Even with it enabled it does not appear and stacks wont give me the option to do a list view. How can i download and install the latest update again. Please help.

    Go and grab the update from here and mount the .dmg and run the installer from there.

    I actually just bought a 425va cyber power battery backup but doesnt seem to work. It seems 425 va isnt enough to support my 20 imac and external drive since when the power went everything shut off. I was able to install everything smoothly now with the combo update package. Seems to take way much longer now to restart and shutdown. About 2 min or so compared to less than a minute.
