...seems to be working. About two weeks ago I posted that with Leopard I frequently experience the eternally spinning color wheel at the login pane when my iMac G4 wakes from sleep with a Firewire drive connected.

Many users have awakened the iMac from sleep and logged in. Nary a spinning color disk.<br><br>Thank you for helping to tame the cat.<br><br>Who serves his fellows, is of his fellows greatest - Chingachgook (by legend) <br><br>Scout
