...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. You suggested turning off Spotlight indexing for that drive. I was on travel for the rest of that week, but I tried your suggestion about a week ago. 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

Reboot helped me, so I was just spreading his word. Glad it worked!<br><br>[color:red]&#63743;</font color=red> [color:orange]&#63743;</font color=orange> [color:yellow]&#63743;</font color=yellow> [color:green]&#63743;</font color=green> [color:blue]&#63743;</font color=blue> [color:purple]&#63743;</font color=purple>
