In the past I have mentioned how sometimes Vista annoys me by doing what it wants, rather than let me get on with stuff, one example which particularly annoyed me was when I was downloading a file (a rather large file) and Vista decided that as I wasn’t actively involved with the computer it would shut itself down!
Now I did think that OS X would not be so selfish and would be more sensible.
Well was I wrong…
Okay OS X is nowhere near as bad as I have found Vista to be, it’s most certainly not perfect.
So what happened?
I had decided to install Leopard 10.5 on my iMac (on an external drive) and after installing from my Leopard install DVD, I went to Software Update to update to 10.5.4, which to my initial horror was a 560MB download, well that’s going to take some time, so I let it get on with it.
So you can imagine my annoyance when I came back to find that the iMac had fallen asleep!
I was downloading a file! No you were downloading a file, you knew you were downloading a file, yet you still fell asleep!
I will give OS X a little credit, at least when I resumed the download it didn’t start it again.
