comment Should I put my MacBook Pro to sleep, or shut it down every day?
@Mitch, that is not true, and @Barry is right. (Note that, while going to sleep, a MacBook is writing its memory to disk, to prepare the Safe Sleep. So, until the LED starts pulsing, indeed the disk is operating. But so is the sudden motion sensor.)

comment Using Paste Special > Values with the HYPERLINK function in Excel
Can you also perform that right-click trick on part of the text? (Just like you could make part of the text appear in bold, etcetera.) And what happens when using Paste Values on cells on which you've used that right-click option?

comment Move files using just keyboard in Mac Finder?
Like noted in earlier answers: Cmd-X won't work. The official shortcut to get to the menu bar is Ctrl-F2 (but invoking help using Cmd-? and then moving left works as well indeed).

comment How to take screenshots in Mac OS X?
The beta is free, true. But it might not be free after the long-lasting beta. And that might be a serious issue with all the Skitch-hosted images posted in forums... tinyurl.com/mvebp4 (I actually put the URLs of the sites where I use my Skitch-hosted images in the comments of those images. Just in case...)

comment Contact information on Mac unlock panel
For 10.6, instead of the workarounds in the answers below, maybe someone knows about some defaults write option to add text to the unlock panel? (Just like there is a defaults write for the login window). Or maybe someone knows how to make the screensaver invoke Fast User Switching instead...? (That would still be a workaround though.) Or how to show the background image while the unlock panel is visible?

comment Find duplicate files on Mac OS X
And after finding duplicates: remember that using Get Info you might find where the file came from (like from what website, email or which other computer), just in case you wonder how you got the duplicates.

comment Why do I get a 550 FTP error with Filezilla, but IE6 is fine?
Hmmm, today the Community user's random poking around made this question appear on the home page of Super User again. Too bad you abandoned it, Skilldrick!
