The current ATTO is at least twice the price of the Apple card (so I can't
understand why anyone would buy a new ATTO instead of a new Apple card).

I don't mind not being able to put my Mac to sleep since the video card I
have in it (Radeon 8500) has problems waking up from sleep.  I just don't
let the Mac sleep.
