    Hey guys, just got my mac back from the store due to an issue where it wouldn't go to speep. I need to restore it from my backup but i'm not sure how. Also, the genius changed my password....any idea what their default one is?

    are you using time machine? Your best bet would be to run the setup DVD, install a fresh copy of leopard/SL and in the setup menu choose restore from backup. This ensures you have a clean install, create your own account and password.

    You could also try leaving the password blank and hitting enter.
