    I've upgraded my uMBP and iMac (2006 model) to SL. The uMBP says in System Profiler "Wake on Wireless: Supported" or something to that effect. On my iMac it doesn't mention WoW at all. I guess it probably isn't supported anyway, but then wouldn't it still say "unsupported" instead of nothing at all?

    I just installed SL on both my iMacs....the pre-metal iMacs....and was immensely disappointed to see neither support it. That's just great. I really wanted to be able to listen to my iTunes on my upstairs Mac without having to run downstairs to turn on the other Mac.

    And it'll be a cold day in hell before I ever upgrade to an iMac that doesn't have a matte screen! :mad:
