Here's how the snap works in Illustrator:  If you move an object in your work to within the specified point distance of a grid intersection, it should snap right to it.  Likewise, if you draw a new object after setting it to snap, it should snap to the grid intersections.

But objects drawn before you set it to snap to grid aren't snapped unless you individually move each object to within the specified distance of the grid interesection.

I hope this helps,
DCS

Max isn't very good about accuracy...  After rotating things sometimes you'll notice you can't get it at 90 degrees, only 89.98 degrees.  As for the snapping, it may just look like it's not perfectly on a grid line.  Turn on your coordinate thing (I don't know the name of it, you right click on the move tool to open it) to see if you're truly snapped or not.
