I am with you on this one. Since I no longer have a DVD player in the house, it would be handy for streaming DVD's from my iMac to my TV.

That might be an option but I certainly didn't have it set that way with Snow Leopard. I have all bluetooth devices (keyboard, mouse, and trackpad) and previously interacting with any of them was enough to wake the iMac up from sleeping. I can try telling the HD to never sleep and see what happens but it doesn't seem like that should be necessary. The "instant on" as you put it is exactly how it was working before 10.7 install whenever I would touch the keyboard, mouse, or trackpad.

I found 'Tap to click' on the trackpad too sensitive, and I had to uncheck it. It was nice, but when I got onto a website with a lot of links, just moving over the links would set them off. I could not find a way to de-sensitize the feature.

Edit: maybe I spoke to soon. Tap to click seems to be working better for me in 10.7.1. Not sure if this was an intentional fix or some other cause for the problem under 10.7.0.

VERY frustrated.

Here are all of the issues with OSX Lion (v10.7.1)
  • No audio to external speakers
  • lots of crashes with Adobe Creative Suite CS4
  • Instability with Suitcase Fusion 3
  • My Wacom Intuos 3 tablet no longer functions correctly
  • Etc.

A total drag.

Have you experienced any of the kernel panics and freezes many users with 2010 MBPs are reporting? Apparently it is an Nvidia driver problem and is not addressed by this update. I have held off installing Lion for this reason as I have a 2010 MBP.

I'm experiencing those in spades, I really wish I hadn't upgraded to Lion. I just did the update so let's see if it unofficially helps at all.

Mind you, I am really enjoying Lion EXCEPT for Mission Control.
Expose was so much better for me.
It always showed me ALL my Windows, even those minimized into my Dock.
Mission Control needs to fix this "yesterday"

The Only two bugs I was seeing were:

iChat would not auto login to my account. It always started "disconnected", to which I then had to select "available", to actually connect/login.
This update took my iChat from v6.0 (925) to v6.0 (927)
and all is working perfect. So, NOW FIXED.

And
I was unable to access all my Shared Files, on the Primary iMac, from the three other Macs in my home network. The primary iMac has 6 hard drives connected to it, with all my Media. Post this update, ALL FIXED.

So, ...now I'm just waiting for Apple to fix Mission Control, so it incorporates ALL Expose functionality.

I personally find Mission Control more efficient than Expose. I have apps assigned to different Spaces so I know where apps are and access them faster. I think you can still do it the old Expose way by using only one Space. My only problem is with LaunchPad. The gesture (three fingers pinch) is annoying and I launched it accident many times that I decided to disable it. Another issue with LaunchPad is there is no way to remove the apps within. Mine is filled with duplicates and non apps stuff.

I agree. making it incorporate Spaces has made this useful to me in a way it never was before. I can switch desktops very easily with Mission Control.

I've used macs since 1985 when I typed up my first research paper. Never used anything else never wanted to.

The two most annoying Lion issues for me have been the inability to turn off the "put hard drives to sleep" preference (the checkbox has no effect), and the Finder losing saved icon positions periodically.
post #51 of 65
Lions preoccupation with my external hard drives has been driving me crazy, it seems to want to access them every quarter of an hour, the spinning beach ball that accompanies this has increased by 70 to 80% since snow leopard.
I was hopeful that 10.7.1 would have gone some way to correcting this, looks like not. \

FINALLY the sleep issue since DP1 has been resolved.

That's worth 14 megabytes right there.

WiFi improvement?

Looks like there is again some technology stolen here (again).

BTW: Lion (& Lion Server) work just fine for me.

Enlighten us all on what you (erroneously) believe is stolen, please.

Good to see Apple have owned up to fixing the Safari video problem that several readers of this forum keep insisting was a Flash issue.

Why on Earth would you wait and see for a system patch of bug fixes that you're encouraged to--and expected to--install?

update on original post from yesterday. 10.7.1 does indeed look to have fixed the issue with iMacs going to sleep and not waking up via interacting with any of the bluetooth peripherals. So far so good.

LOL old habits die hard. It's been a while since 10.6.1 ... ever since 10.6.2 Combo Update is pretty much the only way to roll. Got tired of the 30 minute to forever "blue screen" after the delta update installing.

For me, for average Photoshop use (cropping, masking, adjustment filters) CS4 Photoshop and Bridge have been OK.

Some Finder glitches thought to have been banished in Snow Leopard are back. Can be annoying.

Grrr. I have the opposite problem with my iMac! Since 10.7.1, it will no longer GO to sleep. Instead, the screen saver turns on when it should be going to sleep - even though the screen saver is set to "Never".

After 10.7.1 installation, my early release MacBook Air still has a terrible time finding my network, and very slow to hookup. Once it's connected, it's fine, but waking from sleep is a 10 minute operation! I hope Apple is still working on it.

If you still have problem with your wireless connection taking so long to reconnect after waking from sleep then do the following:

Go to network setting and make sure you are in the location Automatic. Then delete the WiFi network by clicking (-). Then click the (+) bottom to add a new WiFi network. Choose Interface = Wi-Fi and name = Wi-Fi. Then click Apply. This should solve it if 10.7.1 didn't.

Mission Control, Spaces/Full Screen swiping left-right and definitely Launchpad is faster now on my 2010 13" MBP. Keynote is still slightly laggy at times especially if I launch VMWare Fusion Win7. I think it's the Keynote AutoSave which is not suitable for medium to large Keynote files. Pre-Lion on a good Mac you could slam Keynote with 1920x1080p or higher slides playing 1080p video. Playback is still okay in Lion for Keynote but versioning is too slow.

One of the most persistent problems with Lion (Only on my MacBook Air, works fine on my iMac) is the "Require Password after sleep" feature. Which, by default; is set to "Immediately".

When I change this on my iMac, it appears to work like a charm. Yet on my MacBook Air (13-inch, 1.7Ghz) it keeps reverting back to "Immediately".

Not cool

May I suggest:

BACKUP TO TIME MACHINE FIRST
Repair Permissions
Delete ~/Library/Preferences
Delete ~/Library/Caches
Delete /Library/Preferences
Delete /Library/Caches
Restart
Reconfigure settings (all of them, unfortunately)
If all is good, empty Trash
