G4 won't stay asleep

Message #1 - Posted 2003/12/10 - John Bevan

Anyone out there have a clue why my wife's G4 (Sawtooth) won't stay asleep? It'll go to sleep and then a few seconds later wake up until the the sleep set period is up when it repeats the deal. At first, I thought it had to be some thing in OS 9 but, now that I've upgraded to OS X, it still does it, whether connected to peripherals, or not.

The only unsual thing about the configuration I can think of is that has a SCSI card and an internal SCSI HD, in addition to the standard (IDE?) drive.

Some badly designed PCI cards can cause this - maybe your SCSI card is the culprit ?
