    Default Speed up display on laptops

    sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0

    That line given to me by quixos and JaS speed up my ppc powerbook by 20 percent,
    and should do the same for other laptop users.

    A big thx to those two gurus.

    Default Just as an aside....

    This works on desktops, too. Why, I have no idea, but I had a considerable performance gain on a P4 tower....

    So if you have a desktop machine, don't be afraid to try it. It worked for me!

    EDIT: You might wanna adjust the subject for the thread, Sporty.

    Check to see if you even had a windowserver.plist file before running the command. I didn't, so I can just delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist to get it back to normal. No idea what it does yet, I have a 2.16GHz C2D MacBook Pro.
