    They are most likely stars from your desktop background shining through the transparent menu bar.

    Go to the Apple:)apple:) in the upper left corner of the screen. Go to system preferences, then to Desktop & Screensavor icon. Click on the Desktop tab and de-check the "Translucent Menu Bar" option. Are the white spots still there? I've actually never noticed them when I had that stock Leopard background.

    When i unchecked the translucent menu bar the white spots disappeared, so they must be from the Leopard background.

    Yeah I actually miss that desktop picture and put it back up but I don't see the white spots you are talking about :confused: LOL. Then again my screen is 1280x1024 so it is different then yours most likely.
