iv'e bought an imac 24" with maximum configuration (2,8ghz, 4gb ram, 1tb HD..) when leopard was released.

i got one with leopard pre installed.

i dont know what it is but i think my old intel imac bought early 2006 is much faster than the new one.
restarts of leopard are EXTREMELY slow, opening iphoto takes about 10 seconds (no pics imported yet) when watching tv via elgato eye tv 3.0.1 (but also when the programm is closed).
safari and some other applications crash several times a day.
is it up to leopard? i've thought these apps would be (because of full 64bit support) quite fast..

and my mac is always awakening on itself when it is in suspension mode (also when i turn on/off my lamp on my desk(?) and when pluging in/out any usb device

anyone may help me?

    My first step would be to do a repair disk permissions. If you are still having problems after this, I would try resetting the PRAM and NVRAM. You can find instructions on how to do this below. I must ask, when you bought this computer did it come with Tiger as the install and then you upgraded to Leopard? If so, this could be part of the problem. Upgrades don't usually work very well in my experience. I always prefer to do an erase and install to make sure everything runs smoothly. Just a few things to try...

    its actually better now after repairing disk permissions!, thanks!

    is there any way to let this do automatically? maybe with automator? but i'm not sure that i can handle this program..

    my first mac, (ordered on release date of leopard) ive got with macosx 4.10 but this one had a problem with display (bright spots when showing dark backgrounds), the next one i got 4 weeks later with leopard pre installed, so there shouldnt be a problem
