I wouldn't bother with the patch as HOS 4.3 is due out within the next couple of days... 

Brings a new feature.... twist ones ear and you will lock their orientation.

I'll wait for the Service Pack.

Too late. I have already spawn a new process and it seems suffering of the same problems.

Ditto, spawned 2 processes. One seems to be an older model but is more stable than the newer version at this point in time. Sleep mode dosent work very well during the day.
Resource comsumption is through the roof.

I have the exact opposite experience. I've had the older model for 13 years now, and the younger one for nearly 10. The older model's stability has significantly deteriorated recently, with frequent random crashes. I've tried installing the KickUpTheBum and YouAreGrounded plugins, but they seem incompatible with the devices firmware, often resulting in much worse stability. I've even tried the LogicalReasoning module, but that wouldn't even boot up.

I'm starting to see similar (but thankfully not as severe yet) deterioration in the newer model.

Maybe you need to RMA them if under warranty, or look at the CGA act if they're not performing as designed.

dclegg, refer to the program "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Teenagers" - it may assist with those plugins not working.

Also when the older model reaches approx 16 years, be wary of malware processes which may try to spawn even more processes.

Sorry, but these human processes once spawned can not be returned to the tree... Apparently there's an exemption to warranty cases for these.

I suggested a return to the manufacturer, but they were not receptive to having them the goods returned to the factory. And the CGA seems a little hazy as to whether the current performance and stability degradation renders them not fit for purpose. It's even been suggested to me that this may actually be an intended consequence of the design, and not a defect at all. 

I have heard that similar models have experienced performance and reliability improvements over time, so I'll probably stick with them to see if this happens. If not, theres always the FrontalLobotomy or GetYourOwnPlace modules to investigate further down the track.

Because these models didn't come with any sort of instruction manual, I have been treating that program as the unofficial users guide. So far I've been very pleased with the breadth and depth of the content, although I'm a little concerned that there are so many other models out there suffering the same problems we're having with ours.

Hmm I have a newer model - < 2 years old so far.  Not keen on this degradation you seem to be having at 13 + years.

Maybe technology will help by the time 10 years rolls around, similar vein to these people that are cyrogenically freezing themselves in the hope that there will be a cure to cancer/heart conditions in the future.
