Re: Do you shut your computer down at night?

My eMac sleeps a lot, except during holidays and whenever I'm not there for more than 4 days. Then it's switched off. My Powerbook sleeps a lot, too. I usually switch it off when it isn't used for a longer time, mainly because sleep still drains the battery after a few days. My old PC is always swit...

Re: MacBook - please explain

If your logic board has been replaced, the serial number will not be available in MacOS X. AFAIK replacement logic boards have no serial numbers.

So looking on the bottom of your machine is the only way of finding it, next to looking on the original Apple sales receipt.
