Hey guys do your system preferences change to the default settings whenever you restart or shut down your iMac. I'm referring to sounds settings and energy saver settings. I notice my output balance changes, maybe because i'm connected to an external hi-fi via audio out. But my microphone input level contantly changes back to around the 3/4 level instead of full which i set it at. Also the auto dimming function before my mac sleeps function keeps coming on by itself! Even when it shows its uncheck! So, i have to check and uncheck it to prevent my system from auto dimming. And this same problem occurs whenever i restart the mac. Maybe you guys could help me check it out?
