iBook dual USB-Wake up from sleep freeze

Message #1 - Posted 2001/10/02 - Peter Callen

I have a new iBook Dual USB. When I put it to sleep by closing the lid and try and wake it up, the pointer moves but the clock and rest of the system is frozen. I am using system 9.2.1.

I plan on giving lectures and if I am the 1st and 4th speaker, I will have to disconnect my iBook from the LCD projector and would like to put it to sleep.

any suggestions.

I went into the energy control panel and selected - Never Sleep . that didn't work.

Thanks for any ideas.

Well I don't know if this is related to your problem, but I've been told repeatedly not to install 9.2.1 on my dual USB iBook, because there are stability issues. I've seen this advice posted on various forums as well. When I have to use OS 9 for some reason, I use 9.1, and I have had no problems with sleep. You may want to consider reverting, if you can't find a better solution.

I agree. I upgraded my iBook dual-USB to 9.2.1 and it has introduced many stabiltiy problems. I also suggest going back to 9.1.

Had some problems at first waking from sleep - iBook would wake up, cursor would move in response to mouse movement, but clicks would be recognized, nor key presses. Had to reboot.

This seemed to have something to do with USB devices being attached or detached when iBook was asleep. Since I've stopped plugging in or unplugging USB devices while asleep, the problem hasn't recurred. But it's only been a couple of days, so it's hard to say whether that was the problem or not.
