Slave and master talking;slave not updating

Let me first say I have checked the other pages of posts first and don't find my problem addressed.

I have been working through the excellent MySQL Tutorial book by MySQL press. I was able to get a Mac OS X and Windows XP machine(both running MySQL 4.1.*) connected and configured for replication and everything was working great. Both of these are everyday use PCs so they get shut down. I always make sure to shut down the instances before I shut off the machines.

Yesterday, I started both of them and their servers and issued the START SLAVE command on the slave. Now, it seems that both servers are aware of each other and the slave and the master are both referencing the same position in the binary log but the slave is not updating any data. When I check the Network Connection on MySQL Administrator it looks like the slave is waiting for an event and the master is waiting for the slave's I/O thread to update it.

Is there a command I can issue to get the slave acting on the logs it's reading?

I'm a newbie to databases and MySQL so pardon me if I'm not making sense or giving you vital information. I've just run out of things to try.

Thanks in advance,
