iBook hanging on OSX sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2001/06/13 - Craig Pugsley

Sometimes (randomly, it seems) when I close the lid of my new 500MHz iBook, OSX will not sleep as it should. Instead, the screen turns black, he drive keeps spinning and if I have music playing at the time, this continues too. I've tried ALT+OPTION+ESC - which doesn't work. I've also tried OPTION+Q to try and close anything running - and this doesn't work either. I have to reboot.

This really is very annoying, as it seems to be happening randomly. It didn't used to happen with my old 300MHz iBook and OSX - so what's going on?

Thanks

I've seen this happen as well - it's clearly a bug. Probably the best thing you can do is report the problem to Apple, as I did. The more reports they get, the more likely they are to address it quickly.
