    Problems with iAlertU...
    Hello all,

    I recently installed "iAlertU" on my macbook pro and everything seems to work great and I really like the program except....well once the alarm is triggered...the alarm begins to sound and then the screen will flash as well...(simulating a car alarm's lights on a car)..and everytime I deactivate the alarm, the screen will go back to my desktop and then all of a sudden turn off for about 3 seconds...and then turn back on...I find that very ANNOYING and it never happened before I installed the application. Does anyone know is the program is what is causing this? is it damaging to the computer because if it is...i'll uninstall the program....can someone please provide some feedback?!

    Thanks!

    Sorry, but this is definitely a "duh" moment!

    I'd suggest not using any app you find annoying.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I don't think iAlertU is compatible with Snow Leopard yet. When I used it with Leopard it worked great, but not it's all buggy.
