G4 sleep issues in 10.1.2

Message #1 - Posted 2002/01/10 - Stephen Schwartz

Since upgrading to 10.1.2 my Quicksilver 867Mhz will no longer sleep, whether I try to induce somnolence via the menu, the power button on the monitor, or after a timeout. When I try, the drives spin down and the screen blanks but the fan keeps running and the power light doesn't start "beating." At this point, I can't even wake it when this happens.

I'm pretty sure this is not related to third-party stuff since, today, I reininitialized the drive and reinstalled 10.1 (sleep worked fine), the Security update (sleep worked fine), some other updates (sleep worked fine) and, finally, the combined 10.1.2 updater (sleep, once again, doesn't work).

Anyone else having this problem? I assume 10.1.3 will fix it.

Do you have any external devices (eg firewire) attached?
