Dino I purchased a 75 dollar plan so far 49 days later it is still good. I have heard a lot of problems and a lot of good stories. I will update you in 30 days . I will keep up the updates. The seller is still on ebay and has 100 percent feedback as of today. I have read that 100 or 200 days after purchase it goes buy buy. I will let you know.

Yea & if yours is good, which I hope for your sake it is. Post the Seller's Name. Because I need to buy the 1st Warranty that I have bought on any Computer, PC's Included. Ironically enough, this is the most $ I ever paid for a Computer, & this one has had the most Problems. I guess the old adage "You Get What You Paid For" doesn't hold up in my case.

Update: Got my iMac back. New Logic Board. First Restart when I got it home. Weird Stuff. No Bluetooth Mouse or Keyboard & Dim Screen. Could not brighten screen. I rebooted & repaired Permissions, and the last 2 Restarts have been fine. In my case, I have never let my Mac Mini Sleep or the Hard Drive Rest when Not in Use. I think I'm following that same rule of thumb here with the iMac. I'll power it down at night & power it up in the morning. I have a gut feeling Sleep messes things up. You may think that sounds crazy. But Bluetooth never does well with Sleep in my past experience. This computer is the first computer I ever used Sleep with & I've had problems. I never had to make any computer Sleep & they and their hard drives have lasted over 10 years. I just shut them down at night. I have too many Hard Drives & Peripherals connected, to rely on the Mac's Sleep Preference. I run all my scripts & maintenance in Onyx once every 2 weeks. It's working NOW. That's all I can say. I don't know why it was acting weird. Who Knows? I now have Time Machine & Super Duper going, just in case it decides not to boot or act weird. Thank you guys once again for all your help. I do appreciate it.

Ok. Just to try. I made a Separate Partition on my Time Machine USB Drive for Super Duper. Used Only 40 GB's. I have to tell you, I am impressed. When I hit Option and Booted into Super Duper, my iMac felt and worked exactly the same as it does from it's Internal HD. I felt no lag, lock ups or Freezes. That is way cool. Thanks guys for making me join the 21st. Century. Smile Now with Time Machine & Super Duper in place, I feel a lot better.

It is pretty cool, especially for freeware. I think this will make your life much easier in the future.

Glad you are up and running again.
