Can't make my Mac sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2001/07/24 - Albear1802

Hi everybody,
I'm running OS 9.1 on m G4 400mhz which I
downloaded so I don't have a CD. Problem is I can't make my Mac sleep when I want to i.e by going to the control strip and clicking on the sleep button. Seems this problem came around after upgrading from OS 9.0.4 but I'm not too sure. Could anybody help out? TIA :-)

Is there a folder in your extensions folder called 'multiprocessing'? Doug H

Hmmm...I guess that's not it, then.
Dumb question, but you've set the Energy Saving panel advanced option to allow push-button sleep, right?

Well good news for me Doug I changed my printer cable and when I go to the Special menu option in the Finder to make my Mac sleep it does it, but really appreciate your help
