    Seems like my Powerbook boots and runs slower lately. Any maintenance I can run on it to get back to the speed it was in the beginning?

    Nice program. I use it often and it does a good job of optimizing & doing those maintenance tasks the computer would normally do if you left it on overnight. Something most laptop users probably don't do for obvious reasons.

    Also, I've heard that Macs tend to lose some drive performance if you are using something like 80% or more of the HD.

    Does these do their own thing or do I have to change settings?

    Onyx has a automated cleanup button where it will run all the maintenance tasks at once.
