iBook - OSX Sleep problem

Message #1 - Posted 2001/06/21 - Craig Pugsley

I pretty much know that there is a problem with the new white iBooks and OSX sleeping. Basically, I used to have a 300MHz iBook that I used with OSX and sleeping on that was not a problem, In fact, it was positively amazing. Sleep and awake in seconds. Brilliant. The problem I'm having now is that my new iBook sometimes won't sleep at all - just turn the screen off and then crash. This also happens sometimes if I leave the iBook for a length of time.

So, my question is: does anyone know of why this is happening, and are there any workarounds for the moment? Until 10.0.5?

Thanks

I've read that this is caused by going to sleep with Classic on, and in my experience this seems to be true. Just quit Classic before going to sleep (a hassle, yes, but not as much as a coma).

I believe this is fixed in the 10.0.4 update which is now out and can be downloaded through the Software Update app.
