So, the original question: should I understand that it's normal, but should I care and if I should, then how to get it to make a sparsebundle?

So, I select the drive using "Select Disk...", select the disk and then "Use for Backup". When it begins backing up for the first time (from that machine) it creates the "Backups.backupdb" folder instead of a .sparsebundle.

Nope, different names (macpro, mbpi7, svn1). Not sure what you mean by "in the device you selected to make the backup to".

Okay...so, now that it isn't, where should I look?

This is what I thought, but how do I get the machine that's connected directly (FireWire atm) to create a .sparsebundle file?

comment Is there a way to turn off an external Apple Cinema Display remotely and continue to use the computer?
I have 2 30" Cinema Displays, so when the screens are mostly white, they use aroud 200W each, so not terribly energy efficient. I do try to remember to turn off the monitors when I leave, but often forget. I do have the monitors go to sleep when not in use, but with screen sharing, the screen saver never comes on as long as screen sharing is open.

Annoying, but just realized/found out that I had a .htaccess file sitting on my desktop, so useful as well, even if temporary.
