G3 Powerbook won't wake up! Help needed!

Message #1 - Posted 2003/12/05 - Neville Godwin

My mate has got a G3 Powerbook running on OS10.2 and it won't come out of the sleep state. I've heard this was quite a common problem with OSX but haven't been able to find a solution for him.

He's lost his internet access as a result, hence my posting for him.

TIA

I don't think it's common at all but...

Tell him to try holding down the power button for several seconds. Chances are, it should bong back into life.

I was for me. Until I swopped some ram out, then most of my wake crashes went away.
