None that I know of. It's not exaclty an item you would put in your pocket so no slide to lock function. :-)

'mouse' will not work


Hi there Linwood
When you say mouse are you talking about the trackpad on the ibook? You can do a forced restart on the ibook by holding down the start key until the ibook restarts of course you will lose any changes that you have made to any documents you have open. However, by holding down the cmd key and the tab key together you can go a particular program by using the arrow keys, once in the program and the changed document that you have open by pressing down the cmd key and the s key together will save the changes. DO THIS BEFORE DOING THE FORCED RESTART.

Hope this helps.

We brought a used ibook 3g and it will not play the dvd's and the videos on youtube keep freezing and won't hardly play. What can we do to fix this problem?


Does it have a DVD Rom drive? check the "About this mac" section and look under ide drives. you should see something that reads DVD-ROM. If not then it won't play movies. As for youtube, its at the most a 466 Mhz laptop, if you're watching it over wireless its only 802.11.b so you're running out of machine, you need a faster one.

Describe your cannot start ibook G3Problem it simply does not start, battery is ok and I have tried to take the battery away and back in its place, but nothing what can I do?


Make sure your iBook is plugged in to the wall. Hold down the power button for a few seconds. If that doesn't work, try holding down Command (the Apple key)-Option-P-R (hold all four keys down) and press the power button. Be sure to hold the power button for a few seconds whenever you turn it on.

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Power Management Unit (PMU). This is kind of a "last resort," according to Apple. Don't do this all the time.
  1. Reset the power manager by simultaneously pressing and then releasing Shift-Control-Option-Power on the keyboard. Do not press the fn (Function) key while using this combination of keystrokes.
  2. Wait 5 seconds.
  3. Press the Power button to restart the iBook computer.
If you have a very old iBook, you may have to unplug your iBook, remove the battery, and
  1. Press and release the reset button located above the Audio/Video port on the left side of the iBook (Dual USB) computer by inserting the end of a paper clip into the small hole and gently pressing the switch once.
  2. Wait 5 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter.
  4. Put the battery back in the computer.
  5. Press the Power button to restart the iBook computer.
(If it still doesn't start, do you hear the fans going?)

Good luck! Let us know if these steps solve your issue.
