"The iMac G5 Sleep Light Update worked OK on our first-generation iMac. We weren't sure if it applied to this model, but apparently even the older versions have the requisite light-sensing hardware."

I really wouldn't know about this hardware- anybody kow for sure? But it certainly seems to work on my Mk1 iG5. I *think* it's as bright as before during the day. It's certianly much dimmer and better at night. --

I saw that one come down the wire a couple of weeks ago - I think it's actually just timer based on the earlier iMacs. I may be wrong.

Well that was my guess too, on the basis that if there had been a sensor people would have been jumping up and down about it. A bit, anyway... But I really don't know.

Yup, definitely timer based. This evening, the sleep light went from bright (daytime) to dim (night) some time between 1900 and 2000. At least, that's my impression.

This must be documented somewhere, but Googling got me nowhere in that line.
