makes it noticably more responsive. it's just a bit louder because the fan runs a lot more often.
you mean sleep? i haven't noticed an "allow nap" setting on any mac ever.
where does one find this setting?
I believe you need to download the CHUD tools. Isn't NAP the thing which allows the processor to throttle up/down depending on load?
I believe so. It did appear in system preferences after installing the CHUD tools.
installing it now. probably wouldn't be the best idea to disable NAP on a PowerBook, but i'll definitely give it a try on my PowerMac and my friend's Mac mini!
I dunno, it could be on the mini for heat flow reasons... and on the PowerMacs (G5s at least) it might lead to unnecessary increase in workload for the fans YMMV
And would probably lead to significantly lower battery life on a PowerBook, no?
Under idling/web surfing conditions the fans are on just a bit (can barely hear them). If I start playing a game they go on full speed...if nap is turned on, I usually can't hear the fans while playing a game. I don't think it will harm anything...but I don't think I'd recommend it for a laptop.
