A long time ago people were talking about turning off NoTapTyping or

On a lark I am testing by stopping pbbuttonsd completely after boot. I don't use the notap while typing feature, but the ordinary trackpad notap isn't getting set by pbbuttonsd as it used to be, so I know there's already some unusual behavior.

Hmm, that sounds like a problem other people (Erik?) has described.

I wonder if that means we have different problems?  I'm not really

I'll search the archives for the sleep thing -- but since I leave the PowerBook on, connected to AC, the sleep issue hasn't been a big issue for me. And the fact that my clock isn't getting reset may just reflect a difference in hardware.

The sudden power loss while actively using the machine sounds EXACTLY the same, but unfortunately I won't know for a few days whether stopping pbbuttonsd has had any effect.
