9.1.wake from sleep problem.cause.epson

Message #1 - Posted 2001/01/22 - Donald Smith

I've found the culprit. It's the Epson 740 printer, under 9.1. If I turn off the printer before waking up the PBook there is no freeze, turn on the printer (or leave it on ) before wake up and I will get a freeze every third (finder error, grey windows, must force restart) or 4th time.
On an ibookSE366, with the same type of printer but USB not serial, the problem is different and not as serious. If the Ibook is in sleep, and you turn the printer on or off, it wakes up the ibook.
... and now, solutions?

...yes Russ, I have an extra 128, I am keeping your suggestion in mind, but I think the problem has been fixed by downloading once again the latest driver + update for my epson 740 printer and trashing all usb preferences for my macally usb pc card, intellimouse mouse, etc, + finder preferences. I have noticed that I would get no freeze if the printer was off, so I became suspicious. Espon printers are know to cause freezes with ARA and perhaps now wake from sleep under 9.1.

Do you have any third party ram installed. I was having similiar problems with ram I boutght from Memory to Go. It was a128 modual. I removed the modual and 9.1 works like a champ. I also found one extention that was causing me problems. All is well now. I have a Lombard 333. I am lookikng for ram that is Apple compliant today.

On a PBG3, 300mgh, OS9.1, Epson 740, Macally usb pc card, Intellieye mouse, I sometimes get (once out of 4 or 5 wake-ups) a freeze with a message saying problem with Finder, and the document window I was working on is all grey. This problem started after the 9.1 update. I have rebuilt DT, zapped Pram, trashed macally, Intellieye , epson and finder preferences, I have the latest drivers.
I have checked with DFaid and TTook Deluxe, no problem.

Any ideas? Is this a conflict, a corruption of sth, or is there a problem in 9.1?

Thanks.

What is the CES patch? Might help for the freeze from sleep when the PB is woken up as well?

Thanks.

It's a patch which helped with conflicts between Remote Access and the Epson drivers; you might want to look into updating your driver before you do anything else.
