Can't put Pismo to sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2003/08/14 - David Smith

Just recently when I select sleep from the menu or close the lid on my Pismo I get an error message saying " Your computer can't sleep because some system software is missing. Reinstall the software that came with your computer. "

I haven't trashed any extensions recently so I assume it's a corrupt file. I'm running OS 9.2.2 and I reran the updater to no avail.

I'd like to see if I can fix the problem without doing a clean install as that involves loading 9.0.4 and then running all the updates.

Anyone know what files are missing or corrupt and how to load just the one I need?

TIA

Dave Smith

I don't, but a check of the archives shows that you're not the only one. m.
