  • I had this problem with my 550MHz TiBook. Turns out that the problem was a loose screw on the inside. The trigger was initially unpredictable like yours. But after a while, I found a spot on the case that would always trigger a sleep when pressed. A…
  • chych is right. However, periodic full discharge of Li-ion batteries is to re-calibrate the electronics that monitor the depth of charge. It does nothing to improve the chemistry (it does harm it a little though). But it's the lesser of two evils. …
  • Have you checked for a runaway process? It could be that something is taking up CPU cycles when it shouldn't and hence generate heat... When it is hot, does the fan come on at all? I have the same machine as yours, but regular 5400rpm HDD and am …
  • I agree, give up the camera talk. This thread is [supposed to be] about Aperture! Perhaps a moderator should just lock this thread or something.
  • I'd like to see a 150DPI 20inch display... 30in resolutions in a 20inch size. My current 20inch display is only 99DPI, which is looking more and more inadequate. Of course, we'd have to wait for resolution independent 10.5 before we can properly …
  • Firefox 1.5.0.2 just released is a universal binary.
  • AFAIK, the real database is in "iTunes Library"... The XML version is provided merely to allow third party programs (including the rest of iLife) access to the files managed by iTunes. The XML version is basically an output file, changing it will do…
  • The question is, is the OS really UB? If it is, how come the recent OS updates had two separate versions for PPC and x86? Shouldn't it be one fat binary?
  • Is this the last PB or the one before that? The last PB uses DDR2 RAM, but the one before that uses DDR RAM. If we're talking about the second last one, then running PC3200 will not be a problem for now. If you replaced your 512MB with another PC…
  • Resolution independence means you can have different screens of the same physical size, say 17inch and you can run it at any resolution, say 800x600 or 1024x768 or even 1600x1200 and the display output will appear the same physical size. So, the …
  • OS X, like other UNIX and Linux systems tend to run maintenance scripts over night. These mostly just rotate log files to keep them at a reasonable size and to delete really old ones. However, if your system is not turned on overnight, then these ta…
  • Quote: Originally posted by deestar I wondering how well these Intel based macs compare to there windows counterparts, there are some Cinebench benchmark results on http://www.railheaddesign.com/ this is a cross platform application so it would b…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Whyatt Thrash Just to not sound like a total asshole: Fire up photoshop. Or Preview. Or Illustrator. And open a file in default 100% size. NONE of them respect the actual physical screen size/resolution relationship…
  • The point is, 100% on ANY machine, SHOULD represent real life paper sizes.
  • On the mac, Word assumes a 72PPI screen. So, 100% should be correct on a 72PPI screen. That is, the display size will appear the same as if you put a sheet of paper of that size up in front of you. Unfortunately, until we get a resolution independen…
  • There are two kinds of profiles, a working profile and a device profile. Then there is the computation engine that converts one profile to another. sRGB and Adobe RGB are working profiles. It basically specifies the set of colors that can be achi…
  • Quote: Originally posted by drumsticks Crap. I take that back... The font corruption is due to a bad font cache. Nothing to do with 10.4.5 Actually, I'm not the only one with font problems http://www.drunkenblog.com/drunkenbl...es/000605.html
  • Quote: Originally posted by drumsticks Yea! This fixed a font corruption problem I was having. I use my PBG4 1.67GHz (High Resolution) with an external Sony Trinitron 20in (VGA cable). When I use TeXShop with monitor spanning, the preview PDF …
  • Quote: Originally posted by melgross Apple could have upped the temp to coax more speed out of the unit. There might be quicker response on some functions than before. It might only be noticeable under certain conditions, though. Yeah, that's…
  • Quote: Originally posted by punica888 sounds like you should contact Applecare about this one. Since this can be a really seriouus issue, if not acted in time What is the normal temperature anyway? EDIT: Reading other forums, I found that…
