I think so. The PPC combined with the power management
unit software is at fault here.

I look forward to the day I can afford to dump this mac mini
and buy an Intel Core2Duo box.

Ranting and raving aside, I wouldn't trade Mac OS X and
attendant hardware for any other configuration, OS or platform.
It is a great productivity tool. And it satisfies all my
Unix and open source needs as well. I must add that Linux
sans X Window is my choice on the server side. Of course,
Macs talk to Linux boxes just fine. (When I have to talk to
Linux using putty on Winders, it is generally a very foul day!)

A bit of irony for you: Aqua and great graphics are nice in
Mac OS X but I still do 95% of my work in the shell.
