10.1 sleep no pulsing light

Message #1 - Posted 2001/10/01 - Payload

Since upgrading to 10.1, the sleep function returned to my G4 Tower after having been disabled due to the presence of a PCI SCSI card. This is very nice.

However, when I put the machine to sleep, the power light doesn't pulse like it does in OS 9. Is this normal? Does it indicate that it's not "really sleeping"?

Appreciate feedback on this.

Thanks.

On my iMac, sleep was restored as well with the 10.1 update, but my power light does pulse like it's supposed to. I'd check the Energy Saver settings, as they can blank the display without the machine being asleep.

You should be able to hear it - does the fan turn off (in addition to the drive spinning down, which can happen with other Energy Saving settings)?
