I have that running, but when I click on "display" and then "temperatures" it says "no sensors found"? When I click on fans, it says "no fans found"? Maybe I need to restart first?

^^^As I said before, if you need to check the temperature, use Core Duo Temp.

I d/led the newest version of iStat Pro, why do you think it won't pick up my temp sensor.
core duo temp picks it up perfectly.

I've read several places that iStat Pro cannot pick up the temp on the Intel machines (although I cannot recall why).

Is it possible to have your widgets always displayed on your desktop, or do you have to use F12 to alternate between normal desktop view and "dimmed widget view?"
