  4. 4. iBook SE (FireWire) 3/5/02 7:51 PM There is an incompatibility between the Kensington Startup ADB extension and the Trackpad control on the iBook with Mac OS 9.0.4. Symptom: trackpad responds during boot, but not later. Solution: disable Kensington Startup ADB extension. This may also apply to other USB portables and versions of the Mac OS. Apple TIL 58445 notes the iBook has no backup battery to retain time and other settings when the main battery is removed. A small capacitor holds enough energy to maintain PRAM contents for 20 seconds, so switch batteries quickly. <go to PowerBook index or LEM home page> LowEndMac Reader Specials Click Here for 14.95 Nationwide Dial Up from a Full Service ISP Dedicated to Mac Users!
