deep sleep and early imac question

Message #1 - Posted 2001/10/16 - PM

MacFriends,

I cannot seem to find the way to put my early (pre slot-loading) imac into deep sleep. I really want to find how to do this, but I wonder if this is not possible on these early models. No problem with the thing going to sleep (monitor and hard drive), but I want the thing to be silent (those snoring fans, etc.); I hope this is what's referred to as "deep sleep." Anyway, can anyone help me with this? Is there an extension of some sort that needs to be in place?

Help.

thanks!

Paul

Have you tried upgrading to 9.1 or better?

Older Macs (like my Yosemite) got the ability to do deeper sleep ina system version recently. You can't do it with the original system.

It's using 9.2, so yes, it's current.
