Oh yeah all the SMC and PRAM voodoo didn't fix anything. I think it's just a software issue because as I said, iStatMenus correctly updates even when the system one doesn't, and it's all pulling data from the same place. I haven't screwed around with it much because it hasn't bothered me too much.

We use Carbon Copy Cloner unless the drive is failing. You don't have to resize partitions and the later versions even handle the recovery partition.

Apple essentially bought it's multitouch technologies. I rest my case.
