Just got a 200GB LaCie hard drive. Some questions: 1: Do you have to unmount the drive via the trash can every time you shut down the computer? Or can you just leave it on the desktop and shut the computer down? 2: Seems like when I have the LaCie HD plugged in, the shut down time is about 5-10 seconds longer. I unplugged the HD, started the G5, then shut it down and it shut down at the normal speed. Does having having an external HD have the shut down time (the blueish screen) stay a bit longer for some reason? It does shut down, but it just takes a bit longer with the HD plugged in. (Note: The HD is plugged into the display's firewire port) Thanks for any info.
