G4 sleep problem

Message #1 - Posted 2004/05/21 - Steve Mills

After updating one of my G4s from 10.2.8 to 10.3.3, putting it to sleep does not spin down the hard drive, and the 2nd video card thinks it has a monitor attached, even though it doesn't, so my mouse (and some windows) will go off screen.

I've zapped the PRAM numerous times and reset the PMU.

Any idears?

tried taking out the second video card for a boot or two? Maybe move it to another slot? (that one might be grasping for straws, but I seem to recall something about card slot preferences being saved)
