ibook g3 500 won't sleep with lid closed

Message #1 - Posted 2005/03/07 - Brian Abernathy

I have recently acquired a 12" ibook g3 500 MHz. I loaded 10.3.8 and all seems well except the ibook will not sleep when the lid is closed. The apple logo on the back of the display stays lit and I can hear disk activity. Any ideas on what could be causing the problem?

No clue about your problem. What happens if you select Sleep in the Apple Menu?

That and...

The usual suspects apply here: connected devices, speakable items &etc. Does resetting the PMU fix things? Are you sure the lid is closed and properly telling the OS to sleep? Does it sleep eventually?
