Does sleep work on a G4/450 with Panther?

This article was on Slashdot earlier today. It's about this Czech guy who has built a G4/450 into his Tatra 613. In two words - simply amazing. Well worth a read.

So I was reading that very interesting article, where I came upon this:

"Unfortunately, system 10.2.4 has brought an end to that. As of this system version, older G4s cannot be put to sleep."

And I ask if that is true, specifically for the G4/450.

I have a G4/450 just like the one in the Tatra (except mine isn't in a car ;-). I'm running 10.2.3, but planning to upgrade to Panther. Mine sleeps just fine now, but the quote above suggests that it might not if I upgrade MacOS X.

Anyone know if there's problem with sleep on a G4/450 running Panther?

My G4/400 "Gigabit" seems to sleep and awaken properly using Panther.

It sounds to me like the author of that article is assuming that problems affecting that specific machine in its specific configuration with whatever software might be on it are universal to all older G4s. There is no known sleep issue that affects all older G4s, but G4s with certain peripherals or out-of-spec memory can have problems sleeping in some versions of Mac OS.
