Well, finally bought a mac. Its an old PowerBook G3, 233, 160mb and 18.67 gb. I noticed a problem when coming out of sleep, a highly annoying problem actually, the backlight doesnt come back on, at all, even if I hit the brightness button. The only way to fix this is to reboot the darn thing. It didnt do this under 10.0, it only started doing it after installing 10.2 . Another issue I've got, how does one update from 10.2 to 10.2.8?? stupid safari wont install unless i upgrade . Thanks in advance.
QUOTE Thanks

Down load the Mac OS X Update Combo 10.2.8, that should bring you to 10.2.8 with not problems. After you install the update. Repair permissions, to make sure all is okay.
