    I know.. i did find the button =)
    but there is no button for firewall logging.. and even
    switching on stealth mode in system preferences->security>firewall->advanced options
    gives me the same output in the system profiler

    Mode: Limit incoming connections to specific services and applications
    Firewall Logging: No
    Stealth Mode: No


    and there is no button under advanced options which lets me switch on firewall logging. ?
    so i am confused... but thx!

    kaosdroid, under the security preferences pane, there should be a tab for firewall, which you probably found. There should be an advanced button for the firewall which will take you into other options that you can turn on like logging and stealth mode.



    Oops, stealth mode is still there, but apparently SL eliminated firewall logging option.

    I saw this article yesterday.. strange thing still is..
    that *system profiler* keeps on saying.. that stealth mode is not running..
    *even though in system preferences it is switched on*..


    i haven't got any
    other computer here.. i could try a port scan to see if stealth mode is on
    or not.

    I have SL on 5 different systems. i found that on the system that had 1TB of data on a 2.8 iMac the same disk as the OS it took a LONG time - like a day or two for spotlight mds to settle down which in turn caused the fans to settle down. on plain systems with small amount of user data and third party apps it only took a hour to settle down.

    right now i am installing logic 9.. copying some files...
    adding my music to the iTunes library... i did a fresh install an hour ago.
    my CPU runs at 25 % usage 75% idle
    temperature is at 75º =)
    lava leopard still didn't freeze though.. but

    i am having a performance next week and i think it wouldn't be
    such a bad idea to downgrade to Leopard again, since i can't afford a
    frozen system on stage... :/ this really seems odd... I never thought
    i'd have to downgrade on a mac....

    I have not had one of my 5 systems lock up with the exception of sticking a 3G option card in that cause a freeze. one of these systems functions as a server and for a .0 release its extremely stable. you shouldnt need to downgrade.

    I have the same problem with fans and high usage

    iStat reports a process called 5A5A6F46.. (doesn't show the full name) running at 98% and fans running at approx 4500rpm, strangly Activity Monitor with all processes shown, doesn't show the process at all, have reset SMC and PRAM which worked for a while, but then put macbook to sleep and woke it and the rogue process returned again.

    I still run it.. if it freezes again after fresh install (about 2 hours ago now) i will downgrade.. first time i installed SL (yesterday evening - fresh install as well) it froze 3 times... 1. time while playing a genius play list and having vuze running... 2. time while listening to iTunes radio and having nothing running and third time while having iTunes, Safari and vuze running..
    now it's running for like 1,5 h no freezing... CPU is hot though... but seriously i wouldn't call this stable... =)
    now it seems better though.. dunno why...

    MODEL: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008
    CPU: 2.53 GHz Core2Duo
    RAM: 4 GB
    DRIVE: 320 GB
    CLEAN INSTALL OR UPGRADE: UPGRADE

    System is running hotter since I upgraded to SL on Fri 8/31 compared to what it was when I had just 10.5 Leopard. Noticed that whenever I play a video on YouTube, temperature goes up. Activity Monitor shows "Flash Plugin" using as much as 105% CPU at times.

    I have tried SMC reset, no luck. Called Apple Support and have an appointment at the Apple Store on Wed 9/2.

    My MacBook Pro 17" 2.66 is smoking hot after Snow Leopard install. My IT Manager is having the same problem after intalling on his 15" MacBook Pro. I hope we can find a solution. This reminds me of the scalding lap days of my old 17" MacBook.

    Looking forward to a solution.

    Thanks!

    I've been an hour w/o it kicking in. I removed the CrashPlan and Google Update daemons from /Library/LaunchDaemons.

    Time will tell.

    I'm having serious heating/fan issues on a MacBook. The culprit appears to be the Safari Flash Plugin - it uses up to 100% and more CPU and causes the temperature and fan to go wild.

    Resetting the PRAM doesn't help but terminating that plugin in Activity Monitor immediately settles things down.

    Hope we can get a fix for this it's a pain.

    I'm not so sure of that. Safari seems to be worst on my machine but others seem to have problems with other applications.

    Have to wait and see what Apple do.

    Re-installed CrashPlan and kept com.google.keystone.daemon.plist removed from /Library/LaunchDaemons and all have been well since last night.

    com.google.keystone.daemon.plist is for Google Updater.

    Not sure if it's the cause, but worth trying.
