Correction to iBook sleep problem

Message #1 - Posted 2003/11/04 - Oneguy

Sorry all, I misspoke regarding my iBook sleep problem after hard disk replacement.

I CAN make the iBook sleep manually, but it will not do this by closing the lid.

Any help appreciated.

(tried to cancel previoous post, but my server is acting up. Sorry)

You've managed to disable the lid closed sensor.

I think it works by detecting a magnet in the lid, and its somewhere near the latch. That's also close to the hard drive, so while you're messing around in there it'd be easy to knock it out of the right alignment.

Thanks! I guess I'll open it yet again.

IWhat about the issue of a sleeping book semi-shutting off. The blinking white dot disappears. Opening the lid or Touching a key (if you put it to sleep from the menu with the lid open) does nothing. You have to hold the power button down till you hear it turn off, then turn back on. Happens some times but not always. What can prevent it?

I think you're right.

There's magnet in the body. Hold a steel paperclip near the lid-release button; you'll be startled at the pull.

Don't let a floppy disk get near it. :-)
