Well, because for one no wires. I know when i built my windoze machine it was overloaded with wires. I like the way apple hard codes everything. and just the beauty of the inside of the computer, everything is laid out simple.

I saw a heat immage of the iMac G5 while it was running. Oddly the processor was not the hottest thing. Another oddity was that in the heat immage you could still see G5 on the processor case.

LOL, that doesn't have one. and i said it did. Therefore i missed type and then i fixed it.

 

The iMac G5 Sleep Light Update adjusts the brightness of your iMac G5 sleep indicator light so it's not as bright during the evening. The daytime brightness remains the same.

what does a light sensor do?

 

It changes some electrical property, like it's resistance perhaps, in response to the ambient light.

 

In iMacs and PowerBooks Apple uses light sensors to detect the light level in the room and adjust the brightness of the LCD accordingly - if this option is enabled.

 

I use it. It's cool.

Go in to a dark room and see if you keyboard lights up, then yes.

If it does you will see an option for the feature I described in your preference pane, if I recall correctly it is in the displays pane. I'm on my PowerMac, so this computer does not have the option.

It seems that Apple is using the light sensor for different things on different models. On the latest iMac machines, the light sensor detects room light and adjusts the brightness of it's Sleeping LED so that it does not keep you awake all night.

 

On my current model PowerBook it is an option on the displays pane, on the Display tab (not the Colors tab) underneath the brightness slider.

 

It says "Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes".

 

I don't know exactly when they introduced this...

The screenshot I posted was from a PowerBook, it has that item in the display pane. Since reducing brightness on the display of a battery powered computer is likely to help extend battery life - I believe that is why the option appears on PowerBooks and not iMacs.

 

The iMac only uses the light sensor to adjust the brightness of the sleepy sleep winking so it is not too bright in your home at night.
