Default Bios A04 to A05 - 06-09-2009, 08:27 AM

My mini shipped with Bios version A04 back in February, and somewhere I missed the fact that it's been upgraded to A05. Can someone point me to a list of differences between the two and if it's actually worth the trouble to upgrade?

If it's worth it, does anyone have a good walkthrough?

Hardware, yes. Software, yes. Code - Why do you think I'm here?

i just did this bios update a few hours ago. it did 2 things that made a huge difference for me:

1. before the update, my battery life estimate was always wrong (on a full charge it said i had 2 hours even though it lasted much longer). now it is accurate! it shows over 4 hours on a full charge. thats more like it! perhaps even an improvement?

2. before the update, my mini9 wouldnt wake up from sleep (id have to turn it off). now sleep works perfectly!
