Did you install any third party items to change the user interface (to change the dock or something like that)? Sometimes that can mess things up. Then again, they may have just been too busy to troubleshoot the issues that it seems to be having. Better that they are making sure it's running right before they give it back to you. Just be patient, although I'm sure you miss it a lot. You'll find out more on Monday when you can talk to them. Let us know what happened.<br><br>
