CPU and the new PowerBooks

CPU and the new PowerBooks -- Conrad Halling wrote to tell us of problems with Connectix's CPU utility and the new PowerBooks. If you have one of those machines and CPU, send in your registration card, because Connectix has a free upgrade for registered users of those machines. In the meantime, Conrad reports that CPU's LCD Saver doesn't work if you switch screen depths, and there appears to be a problem with the backlight coming back on after it has dimmed.
