I've been enjoying my upgrade from Tiger to Leopard on my MacBook. I really think it's a big move forward. However, I have had some bugs as listed below...

- desktop icons disappear but reappearing after a restart
- time machine total freeze up
- cancel and restore button of time machine interface totally disapearing
- having to log in 2 times after waking from sleeping

Anyone else having any similar 'glitches?' I did the simple install so I wouldn't have to reinstall all my apps. Maybe I'll have to do the clean sometime.

These bugs don't ruin my day, but I have had about 2 of them a day for the past week.

I'm not getting any of those issues. I'm not using Time Machine though. I might if I had an external hard drive... maybe two. I also did the achive & install so that might.

Only bugs I've had so far is:
- Network loses connection frequently (AirPort)
- Transfering things from my USB to my hard drive... gets a few mb over but then there's an error and I have to relaunch Finder =\

I wish they'd issue an airport update. Not being able to easily switch networks is a real pain...

I hate the new network apps. I hate that Internet Connect is gone and my AirPort isn't showing all the networks available.

Though, to be fair the airport issue is all i have "wrong" with Leopard (or Leeepurd, as the hispanic guy at Future Shop called it...lol) Also I've read that soon 10.5.1 will be out and it is now already in the hands of testers, so I can put up with these minor inconveniences and wait for this new .1 update

Still a Happy Mac Cult member.. BUT.. They kept this OS for 5 months after the original release date for no good reason other then for a boost in sales in the 4th 1/4 of the year. In that time any of the issue that we are having should have been fixed. I have called apple on a few issues and the answers each time I felt they had no idea of what the problem was. Which is very odd being apple is normally on the ball. And Well Versed in there Programs I would cut them slack if they did not hold the OS for a late release. I dont remember this manny issues with panther and tiger maybe i have grown to expect more form apple or this time more problems effect my machines were as in the past I may have lucked out.


But with the Issues
Apple is Still Soooo much better then other option for an OS

Do a clean install and your problems will go away. Unless you have buggy hardware that is...

Only woes im having are with downloads on a WIFI connection - same connection, on same computer, at same distance from router on Tiger had no problems, but under Leopard it keep dropping the connection before the download completes. VERY annoying!

I have had Leopard installed for a few days and haven't really noticed any bugs. Mind i haven't really noticed many new things either (apart from some of the obvious)

I did a clean install and I AM having issues with AirPort. It used to show 7 or 8 networks (i live in an apartment) in the drop down menu and now it usually only shows 1. It's not even reliable at holding onto that network. It always seems to happen at the most inopportune times that the only networks it can find are other password protected networks, but has no recollection of my wireless router sitting 15 feet away. It has nothing to do with the router or the hardware, as it works fine in XP. It's just frustrating, but I have every confidence that they will fix it soon with an update. I'm sure I'm not the only person having these issues.

My mouse is hung after I wake up from sleep. This never happened on my old MB with Tiger. It literally takes like 2 minutes before the touchpad is activated after sleep. Wierd.

okay, they definitely need to improve spotlight as it is nowhere near as efficient as it once was. Also, safari needs some improving as well as it will sometimes load pages and then lose the connection. The issue though of not having internet connection is TOTALLY RIDICULOUS, and what if you don't use ethernet??? like when I am in Europe in Greece or Italy i use a modem connection and now what am i supposed to do?? use a secondary software option to connect to the internet through a modem connection???

thanks, but this seems a bit stupid sometimes when you really look at the bugs that are problematic...
