MacBook (Pro) Software 1.1

Apple has released MacBook, MacBook Pro Software Update 1.1, which it says addresses a responsiveness issue on MacBook and MacBook Pro notebook computers. According to Apple's documentation, "some MacBook and MacBook Pro systems may occasionally experience a temporary suspension of keyboard input which can last a minute or longer. The Mac OS X 10.5.1 update is required before installing the MacBook, MacBook Pro Software Update 1.1."

    So far, so good,

    ...but when I restarted expose and spaced did not work. I had to restart and now everything is happy. I am glad for the update. I have had no trouble with my MB, but my MBP has been giving me fits in spite of resetting the PRAM. That would help for a few days, but then the issue would happen again. They came up with an update for garage band which is about a billion gigs and I don't use garage band, but I updated anyway because I don't like to see the checkboxes indicating I need to update something when I run Software Update.

    so...

    I guess this is actually a leopard issue more than a macbook issue?

    Re: so...

    I would've thought so too since it didn't start affecting people until after Leopard. The update did want me to have my laptop plugged in which I've only seen requested when doing firmware updates so it must've patched the firmware somehow (or maybe EFI?).

    Trackpad fix?

    No mention that this might help those of us with the trackpad jerkyness issue?

    Interesting...

    Mayhaps the keyboard issues has finally been addressed, but they still need to tweak the Safari crashing thing and the lack of sounds in Mail. Oddly, it seems that Safari crashes most often when I am on MacNN.

    I also have Safari frequently crash on MacNN. I believe it says something about a problem with Flash. I assumed it was the ads that cause it.

    Unwanted updates

    Faceplant: If you don't want to download and install updates, such as those for Garage Band, you can select the update, and choose "Ignore Update..." from the Update menu. It won't appear on future Software Update runs.

    If you've ignored something you didn't mean to, you can go to the Software Update menu and select "Reset Ignored Updates". Why these two options aren't in the same menu, I couldn't tell you.

    Yes Jimothy....

    But it is my OCD that requires me to update things. I even keep SW up to date when I have used it for years. Heck, I still wonder if there any updates to System 7, and if there are, I will dig up my LC and update that bad boy. I mean, I update my digital camera firmware, and my phone's roaming ability, and when there was the Leopard update, I throw an update party where I had beer that was 5.1 alcohol content. I am so nerdy that on March 14th of every year, I throw a pi party. Think about the Pi party on March 14th. It's funny.
