Apple’s fifth official iteration of OS X, 10.0.4 is available now and in additionto various minor fixes to USB, Classic, and networking features, a couple of small fixes will warrant a download for iBook and PowerBook users.
Several sleep-related fixes have been added. Most importantly, the “iBookcoma” appears to be fixed, according to early adopters, which causeddifficulty with 2001 model iBooks when waking from sleep. In addition,according to Apple’s Tech Info Library (TIL) article 106360, 10.0.4 “Addresses a potential issue with certain PowerBookcomputers in which an undesirable sound may be heard while the computer isin sleep mode.” (The author has experienced this high-pitched whineemanating from his audio-out port on his TiBook and is much relieved!)
Inaddition, 10.0.4 apparently “enhances PowerBook battery power conservationwhen in sleep mode,” a problem also reported here on Go2Mac, though noimprovements have yet been made to address reduced battery life whileoperating under X.
The upgrade also appears to address a wide variety of USB-related issues.10.0.4 can be downloaded as either a 19.3 MB universalupgrade (for any version from 10.0.0 to 10.0.3), or a specific upgradefor 10.0.3 users which is only 12 MB.
