I recently because the technology director at a public elementary school. We have about 50 iBooks that are a few years old, and now that it's summer, I have time to do some routine maintenance to clean them up and keep them in good working order.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for what sorts of things to do? Other than Software Update, and probably doing a full battery drain and re-charge for all of them, what are some other good options?

I'm not as familiar on Mac OS's - on a Windows machine I might defrag the hard drive and other things like that.

Hi Tech Teacher,

I don't know if still needed, but you can download Onyx from Titanium website, which is a multifunction utility (for example the leopard version allows you to verify the Startup Disk and the structure of its System files, to run misc tasks of system maintenance, to configure some hidden parameters of the Finder, Dock, Dashboard, Exposé, Safari, Login window and of some of Apple's own applications, to delete caches, to remove a certain number of files and folders that may become cumbersome and more.)


And of course update the OS and applications (clic on the apple, system preferences, update) or throught the apple website.
