It seems that my PowerBook G3 wakes up faster under 9.1

It also seems that the font uses in the finder is bolder making it easier to read.

Is it only me or other people have noticed it?

Am I the only one who can't use sleep? If my G4 goes to sleep I get an error every time it wakes up. "THE APPLICATION FINDER HAS UNEXPECTEDLY CRASHED" followed by a hard freeze. Every time. 9.0, 9.04, and 9.1 all do it to me. I've done clean installs, screwed with the energy saver comtrol panel, everything I could think of.

I have no problem to put the computer to sleep, either from my G4 or my powerbook

no problem here -- and 9.1 runs *much* faster than 9.0.4, somehow.

must be tons of under-the-hoods in there...

My G4 wont sleep either. Even if I manually put it to sleep, it immediatly wakes up...the damn thing is an insomniac! I was hoping 9.1 would fix this, but no change. I got the sleep to work previously by trashing the control strip preferences, but that doesn't work anymore.
