10.1.3. Music doesn't continue on wakeup.

Message #1 - Posted 2002/03/06 - Loren Finkelstein

I don't play with this much, but a friend used to demonstrate how quickly OS X laptops wake up in the following way.

He'd be playing some music in iTunes, and close the iBook to put it to sleep. Then he'd open it up and the music would start playing before he even got the screen open all the way.

Since the 10.1.3 upgrade, music doesn't automatically play anymore on wake up.

I never tried it before 10.1.3, but am seeing the same results on my TiBook.

Maybe there is an option that was on by default before which is now off and needs to be turned on?

Or, did apple break this in fixing something else?

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Loren

I'm not aware of any new option, but this behavior now also occurs on my G3 desktop and I agree, previously playback would instantly resume.

I've heard rumblings about how 10.1.3 is more aggressive about shutting down sound hardware to save PB battery life, but this doesn't make sense on a desktop computer, or really in the general context of this issue.

iTunes actually behaves like it has been told to stop playing, as if by an Apple Event (hmmmm was Mp3 playback during sleep draining some Apple VIP's battery?)

All in all, 10.1.3 seems a slightly shaky release.
