    Apple does not list a backup battery for this 12" Ibook model. When I restart the computer the dock settings reset as well as internet options.

    The time and date DO NOT reset. :wtc:

    WTF? I figured the time and date would reset. NOOOOOO, everything else does.

    PS- how do I change the "shortname" in accounts? It's not letting me access it even with the lock unlocked.

    you can't change the "shortname" - i know that for a fact. it tells you that the first type you type it in.

    and can you be more specific on the time and date resetting, i dont understand your problem?`

    Will it let me change the names of the categories? Like the name beside the house in the finder window. I noticed it would let me, but when I restarted it would revert back to the name that the previous user set.

    actually you can change the shortname, but it starts becoming messy business, and you could really fuck some things up.

    (PS- right click and check "check spelling as you type" for spell checker. Figured out how I turned it on last time.)
