    A few questions about my new powerbook..
    Hi everyone. Im new to this forum, i just got my 12" powerbook a week or so ago. Its a great little machine, but i have a few questions.

    1) How much battery does sleep use up? If i put my laptop on sleep, should i leave it plugged in? thanks for your help

    2) what are your guys' favorite programs that you use on a regular basisand cant live without?. either games or utilities or whatever. so far i only have ms office on my pb. ive heard i dont really need an antivirus.. thanks a lot

    Specs:
    G4 1Ghz OS X 10.4.7
    For apps look in version tracker Mac Janitor is a good idea. Sleep uses very little power

    You need to drag the application icon to the folder where you want it kept. Most applications have a "Read Me" type file that explains that you need to do this.
