I own an original iBook (300 mhz...3 gig hd...) and after I installed OS 9.0.4 I can't use the thing when it is unplugged, it runs so slowwwww, the minute I plug it in, t he thing zooms. I decided to see what would happen when I turn off processor cycling for the battery mode...absolutely no difference. Please help!

in energy saver control panel, click advanced, and UNCLICK Allow Processor Cycling. This should fix you right up

oscar, noraa said that s/he already tried turning off processor cycling to no avail.

Try resetting the power manager.

figured out the problem, in the system folder there is a little item called powerpc enabler 9.0.4. I removed that, and all is good now (basically I tricked the system into thinking it's still running OS 9. Hopefully apple fixes this problem soon!
