Follow me on Twitter @EugeniaLoli 8 Comments 2004-07-28 5:32 pm Just wondering if anyone knows. 2004-07-28 6:05 pm all the articles i’ve read have been really vague. Apple Insider got this from the notes that shipped with the first public build: According to Apple documentation, key enhancements to Mac OS X 10.3.5 include updated Mail and Image Capture applications, improved font management, ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers, additional FireWire and USB device compatibility, improved Bluetooth compatibility for Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse and Bluetooth phones, and improved compatibility for third party applications. so nothing on sleep from what i can tell. new graphics drivers are always nice. hopefully the new version of mail will include their new mail box format (individual files for each message) and other issues. currently my mail box doesn’t correctly apply rules, occassionaly loses the password to my account, moves junk mail back into my inbox (still marked as junk though), and some other little things. usually a bug fix note comes with each of these developer releases as well but i haven’t seen one for the past two releases. hopefully this means that its stable and we’ll get to see it in a week or two. 2004-07-28 6:27 pm I’m wondering about laptop wake from sleep issues. I’m actually quite happy that my PB17 is the first laptop I own whose sleep feature actually works. No such luck with my old G3, where a going to sleep meant having to do a hard reset. 2004-07-28 8:16 pm What sleep issues are we talking about? I have two Apple laptops and sleep works great! 2004-07-28 8:59 pm I had problems with my ibook failing to wake up, it turned out to be a bad / incompatible ram module. Since changing the ram I’ve had no further problems 2004-07-28 9:55 pm Never had any issues with my iBook and it’s 2 years old. Check your ram or even the logic board issue. You never know what could cause it. 2004-07-29 2:56 am If mail cant connect to a server it _sort of_ disables the account. It forgets the password, and next time it tries to connect asks you for it. Just cancel the request, right click on the accounts inbox and ‘go online’, it will work again. Older versions of mail required a relaunch to reactivate an account that had failed to connect. Still sucks, just a bit less. 2004-07-29 3:25 pm So far EVERY laptop I’ve heard of with sleep problems has been connected to aftermarket RAM or the logic board. Mail – I don’t have a problem at all with the way that Apple Mail (Mac OS X 10.3.4) turns off one of my mail accounts when it gets disconnected. It is VERY easy to click on the icon next to the account to tell it to try to connect again. And that icon makes it very easy to see which account got disconnect, assuming I forgot which one it was. Having multiple e-mail accounts due to managing a few different websites this comes in very handy.
