I can GUARANTEE you that it's not a 35W adapter. I have a first gen MBP adapter and a new one from two months ago. Neither are 35 W.
What you probably do have is an 85W adapter... where the left side of the "8" was rubbed away, leaving you with a 3.
Here's what I did... it works now but I can't determine which step exactly worked:
1) installed Bonjour for Windows
2) turned off simple file sharing
3) in Leopard, turned on SMB file sharing (yeah I know we want Windows -> Leopard sharing not the other way but it worked)
4) connected to...
This program doesn't resize (but this a Mac, you don't maximize most windows anyway :) but Forget-Me-Not is awesome. Not Leopard compatible yet though.
FMN remembers where all your windows were depending on your monitor setup, so if Firefox was on the external in the upper left corner but...
Nice. I do wonder what the cause was.
In the past I realized that some Dashboard widgets I was running were in Rosetta (baaaaaaaddddd), that helped a bit.
I was going to post that I have a 2 GHz Core Duo and even when I only had 1 GB of RAM things usually opened within 3 bounces.
I have a Core Duo (yes old) 2.0 GHz 15" MBP.
No problems whatsoever with USB drives. I use flash drives, an external via USB, USB mouse, keyboard, and printer.
No problems using Expose showing All Windows when I'm connected to my 22" (1680x1050) external monitor as my secondary display...
Actually, no I'm not. Forgot to mention that I'm playing on 22" external 1680x1050. I'm not a "hardcore" gamer--in that I could care less what my framerate (the number) is, I only care about what it looks like in the end. And IMHO, it looks just fine to me.
You get a lot fewer shocks if you use the 3-prong (grounded) adapter to plug into the wall. IMHO it's just sloppy design, but there's nothing you can do about it. I've called Apple support and this is what they've told me (use 3-prong, unless injured nothing they'll do)
Seagate makes pretty damn good drives--they're often quite quiet and their warranty is the best among common manufacturers (5 years).
They're definitely not perfect, but I dare you to find a consumer hard drive manufacturer that hasn't had past models with similar hardware...
