My iBook is very slow to load after contact with a magnet
I have an iBook that is very slow to load after my daughter had a magnet around it for about 15 minutes during which it blinked on and off several times - any suggestions short of reloading every program from scratch?

Run a demagnetizer around the area she had the magnet around the computer. The conductivity has sent a pulsation into that particular area. Demagnetizers were used on cassete recorders and are very hard to find these days

The pointer jumping on the screen sounds like you may have picked up a virus. While rare, there are mac viruses. I would try to save all my data documents and any other valuable personal files or lists, then do a clean reinstall of the operating system. Then load our documents back in.
You could try to scan for a virus with a mac virus program, but not many are available for a G4 Power PC (PPC) machine.
An Internet connection is required. On iOS devices such as the iPad, the iBooks App includes the iBooks Store. Tap the iBooks icon and your bookshelf appears. In the upper corner, tap the Store button and the bookshelf flips around to reveal the iBooks Store. From the iBooks Store, you can browse books by title, author, or genre. You can also view featured books as well as books available on the New York Times bestseller lists (United States only). Tap on a book to see more details and download a free sample. When you buy a book, it will automatically appear on your iBooks bookshelf.
The M61 has an elevating seat. There is a speed limit switch which consists of 2 magnets that make contact under the seat on the seat post. If the 2 magnets are together then the chair thinks the seat is all the way down. If the magnets aren't touching it activates a safety feature in the controls which cuts power to the chair by 50% hence drives real slow. Try lowering the elevating seat down through the joystick controls. If that doesn't fix it then either the magnet switches on the seat post came unplugged or broke.
Ok, there is something you can do to try to fix this. You need to reset the power management circuits - it's very simple, just follow these instructions:
Firstly, try a less drastic approach - hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. This may succeed in starting up your iBook.
If that doesn't work, you need to reset the power management. Unfortunately, there are plenty of different models of iBook and many have different ways of resetting. You'll need to consult this guide to decide which way will work for your model.
If you need a hand figuring out what type iBook you have, just ask, and I can guide you through figuring it out. Same goes if you don't understand some of the instructions.
Hope that helped, good luck!
Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.
Rich, I can't bring anything up on that model number but if this is like the other front load models there should be a small magnet on the right side of the detergent drawer. On most front loaders if this magnet is missing, it won't start. As you pull the drawer out look to the right side just behind the front part of the drawer. The magnet itself would be about 1/4 in. by 1/2 inch. If you don't see one and you have a magnet around the house place it on the right side where the drawer would make contact to see if the washer funtions...Good luck,
