    Default Accounts, Root, and Permissions questions

    Hi fellas,
    first off, awesome forum!

    anyway, i'm running iDeneb 10.5.5 and its really sweet, i'm very happy with it.
    I use the machine to run Logic Pro 8, and nothing else.

    so far i've been logging in as "root" all the time, and the Logic project folder is in the root directory.

    is there any disadvantage/danger to always logging in as root?
    i've noticed that sometimes the machine can be a bit sluggish and occasionally my mouse and keyboard dont work from boot.

    i tried setting up a non-root account for myself but i couldn't get access to the logic projects folder.

    so, essentially can i go on logging in as root all the time without worry or should i set up an account properly and move the logic project folder??

    thanks!

    What is PS/2?

    its just sometimes the keyboard and mouse dont work, but that could be due to missing parts of my "PowerOff_Fix-Clear extension cache-repair permissions-shutdown" power down ritual

    Your keyboard and mouse are PS/2 or USB?

    USB

    they're just a Dell keyboard and mouse. i've noticed that when i turn the machine on, the bios comes up, and then when it changes to darwin is the time when the keyboard light will either light up or not light up. majority of the time it works fine. i suspect its got something to do with my "shutdown ritual".
