    I'm having some of those issues as well. What bugs me most is a password issue with Mail/keychain. It seems to forget the password I want saved. Make double sure to check the box to have it saved in the keychain.

    Tried doing a repair in the keychain access, but that didn't help. Not sure what else to try.

    The thought of going back has crossed my mind as well.

    Yeah, I'm not going to install Leopard on my iMac, but am keeping it on the MacBook. MacBook is mostly for schoolwork, which is less important , iMac is for everything else.

    robbym.. so you just bought it and now going back to Tiger? waste $129?... I'm sure Leopard comes with several bugs, but you can just wait for an update. I haven't had any troubles so far, I don't like the transparency on the menu bar, and the dock not so much, i can't tell very good whether a program is running or not, i have to take a good close look at the dock! but the dock can be changed, i've found a site to do that. I love the new Finder and Front Row, i use my MB for school mostly, don't use .mac nor Mail.app so i can't help you with that.. Good luck tho!

    I've got some irritations, but I won't switch back. The good out weighs the bad and the ugly for me.

    Any bets on a 10.5.1 release before the end of 2007 though?

    I have discovered another 'bug' though and can replicate this any time. If you watch an iTunes video in full screen, and have your dock set to 'hide', after you finish the video, the dock will not reappear unless you shut down or 'kill all dock'

    Anyone else notice this?

    I had some of these same things happen to me. Apple had me install my disc and go to disc utilities/erase and than zero out my hard drive and install Leopard. It worked...so far no issues...

    Going back to Tiger...
    I just bought Leopard, and around these forums there's a lot of negativity surrounding it... so what if I install and it ends up being not so wonderful? Would I have to buy Tiger in order to go back? Because my MBP came with Tiger installed so I don't have a disc...

    you must have bought your MBP from a 3rd party... right?

    You can (should) do a full bootable backup of your current system then install Leopard... if you don't like it you can restore from the backup.

    I didn't really read all of the info at this link but I'm fairly sure it'll answer your question and more ... Scroll down the page and read the paragraph titled:

    Get Serious About Your Backups

    Now is the time to use your external FireWire hard drive to make a complete bootable clone of your current hard drive. The easiest and, in my experience, most reliable way to do so is to use good old Carbon Copy Cloner once again. The default settings should be fine--make sure that the "Make bootable" checkbox is ticked in the Preferences sheet, though.

    What if I just want to make a copy of the Tiger OSX, not my entire hard drive (which is already backed up)? Is that possible? =/

    Leopard doesn't actually have to be any different from Tiger, so there should be no reason to need to go back.

    Everything works exactly as before - the dock, folders, preferences. The only real things that are different are Time Machine, Spaces, Cover Flow and Quick Look and you don't actually need to use any of them!

    I'm just concerned about 3rd party apps screwing up... if too many of them do, I may not be able to handle it! Lol

    I know you can do this with the install disc, it may need to be the retail version though ... don't know about doing it without the install discs ...

    It would be worth looking at say, eBay and pricing a 'Full Retail Install of Tiger', as this is the disc you need .... but make sure you get the right version ... there's G5 iMac and Intel iMac verions of Tiger AFAIK.

    The retail disc is identifiable by a black label with a white X on it. I'm not sure if you need to be careful about buying an 'Upgrade' versus a 'Bootable' set or if that even applies ... I know when I recently bought a OS 9 system disc I had to be careful not to buy the upgrade cos the HD was actually empty with nothing to upgrade from ... it's little things like this that can catch you out if you're not fully informed.

    You have the right attitude there p1p3r, from what I've read it's people who straight out upgrade to Leopard without first preparing their HD that *seem* to have issues (of course I may be wrong).

    If and when I upgrade I will be disabling all my 3rd party apps and sys pref panes and possibly even uninstalling stuff to try to return my iMac to as close to a lean system as I possibly can ... also unplug any periphs except keyboard/mouse (lol).

    That link I gave has some good tips about preparing your mac, pre- upgrade ...
