comment Intermittent Static / Garbage External Display On Wake and Boot? Picture included
I use a workaround on my setup which is quicker (and less destructive to window positioning) than unplug / replug. Instead, I press ctrl-shift-eject to put the displays to sleep, then wake them up again by pressing shift a few seconds later. Mostly this resolves the issue for me, although sometimes I have to do this twice. Although perhaps I don't have quite the same problem: I'm using a MacBook Pro Mid 2009 with Apple's Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adaptor, and although I see this static on wake intermittently, I can still see the Mac display through it somewhat.

Try ejecting the DVD, and instead hold alt-d at startup. On some machines (not sure what the criteria is) I've found that this downloads AHT over the Internet.

Are you sure you are using the correct AHT DVD for that machine? I think I've seen similar behaviour when using the wrong version...

revised Which IP ranges and subnet does OSX internet connection sharing use by default?
After some more thought, my answer is probably incomplete: added a caveat about forwarding.

comment Most-efficient way to copy iPhoto events between computers?
@craig Is there a typo in the question? It reads "I want to preserve... on computer B, but copy... from computer B". I was expecting one of those to be "computer A". Can you clarify?
