    PowerBook Problem with Airport...whats up??
    I haven't been using my wireless lately in my dorm room, just ethernet hookup. Tonight when I tried to turn my airport extreme on it wouldn't come on. I clicked it, clicked turn airport on, and it acted like it might have been coming on then didn't. I restarted and it worked fine. After about 7 minutes of use, I closed the lid and put it to sleep. When awoken from sleep again the airport was off and wouldn't come back on again until I restarted it.

    What is causing this problem?

    I've also noticed that a lot of times whenever I wake my powerbook up or restart my HD icon is moved to some other part of the desktop where I didn't have it...??...

    First step is to try repairing permissions.

    When you get the airport to turn on is it able to connect to a network?

    I too have problems with wireless after sleeping.

    However, my thingy has never moved like yours has.

    I've also been having airport problems. It's not allowing me to connect or recognize networks that I have previously been connected to. Sometimes I can't get a signal from a network that is set up 7ft from my computer. Also, if I do connect to a network sometimes it will show full signal but not allow me to go anywhere saying 'the specified network cannot be found.
