    My hinges were loosening up some on my 17" powerbook so I decided to open the unit and tighten them. When I got in there the sensors were NASTY. Micro dirt particles were falling through the screen onto the sensors and collecting over the last few years.

    I ended up cleaning the sensors after tightening the hinges and I've never been more happy with my book. My shadowbook is much more responsive and of course my hinges are tight now :)

    You guy's should clean those every 6 months or so because the filters DO NOT keep them clean.
