I was so hopeful when they announced the Mac Pro the XDR display would be updated. Then nothing, so the next thing, would they drop the price? Nope. Damn, Apple!?

I installed this along with Sonoma and, I don’t know if this was fixed before, but I’m getting some better power management features. The display now seems to ‘sleep’ more … soundly… for lack of a better word. I’ve noticed the fans now turn off after a period, whereas before they used to stay on permanently. Definitely appreciated to extend the life of the fans. So it appears the display goes into deep sleep after a period. I haven’t thoroughly tested, but I noticed for example, unplugging a lightning cable plugged into display connected to keyboard, would get the fans going again - but not wake the display. This is with MacBook, and mouse dongle attached to MacBook Air. Minor changes but I’m happy with this.
