    It is possible, but it is much preferable to do an archive and install from your original restore DVD.

    I have confirmed that 10.4.9 does not turn off the audio subsystem while running on AC power.

    I am willing to do a complete backup and wipe the HD and bring the system up to 10.4.9 to prove that it is this update...

    Have any of you had a chance to call Apple yet? I will when I get home, but I'm at work right now, and I'm sure they will want the computer in front of me to "diagnose" the issue.

    I'm having the same problem on a C2D iMac with external 2.1 speakers. Popping noise from the speakers when a sound wants to play and like a minute after that it pops again and 'shuts down' the soundchip. Didn't have this with 10.4.7/8/9. Started today when I installed the update.

    You have been adamant since the beginning
    with your user fault argument.


    Please don't misrepresent what I have said. "User fault" is only one of many possibilities. For example, it would be ridiculous to blame a user for RAM that goes out of spec.

    Do you have proof that it is not caused by
    the update?


    Do you have adequate proof that it is? More to the point, how do you explain the fact that only some users have the problem, even taking into account the models the upgrade is installed on?

    My only interest in this matter is helping to discover the cause or causes involved, with the hope that this will lead to a remedy or remedies for afflicted users. However, I refuse to use selective or flawed reasoning in that quest because experience has taught me that it is much more likely to obscure than reveal anything useful.

    Simply put, I'm quite willing to accept to any theory that explains all the facts. I don't think that is in the slightest an unreasonable attitude.

    If you can't see that this problem is related to the update then I think that says a heck of a lot more about you than it does anyone else here.

    Also, your logic is flawed. There are many cases where an update has caused a problem or issue that was later found to be user serviceable. in some cases, finding and deleting the right .plist has been a solution, etc.

    What is of no help, frankly, is the attempt to convince people that they are deluding themselves about this issue.

    Count me in! Original CoreDuo MacBook 2Ghz connected to external speakers.

    It's like after a time out of no sound, it's shutting the sound down, hence this single "pop", then as soon as there is a sound "pop" again to turn it back on.

    It's so bloody annoying, so I recommend Apple fix it, or err, you know, well nothing will happen, but I wont be happy...

    And will people stop being SOOO pedantic about this. It WAS the 10.4.10 update that caused this irritating as **** problem. It was NOT here before, it is now.

    Therefore in my mind, it's Apple's fault, and Apple will sure as **** fix it - or get a series of annoying phone calls from me. I don't want a "work around" or to reset the whatever-PSU thing, or any other crap. I just don't want an annoying pop sound - It makes my studio a irritating place to work.

    I also use Adium, but the problem happens regardless of what is running. Hitting the volume control on the keyboard causes it.

    Count me in. iMac Core 2 Duo. Popping sound a few seconds after audio stops. Very loud on my amplifier connected to the line-out of the iMac. And indeed very annoying.

    I have a Macbook 1.83 and am having this as well. Given that my Mac is hooked up to my stereo and 300w Velodyne sub, its REALLY annoying!

    Hope they make a fix SOON!!!

    add me to the dozen. I work on this machine (MBP C2Duo) 10+ hours EVERY day and have never heard this sound until the 10.4.10 update. Hands down, no question
