Since Macbook Pro's iChat has been having problems signing on to my AIM account. I sign on and in opens and closes really fast and all of a sudden fails. Any other users have this...? Any suggestions?

Sounds to me like you might have some issues with your internet connection allowing constant data streams, or a firewall issue inside of Leopard. May want to check and see if your firewall is turned off/on, and if on, adjust the settings appropriately to allow iChat the access it needs.
