iBook won't sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2002/03/24 - Trace Curry

Hi all,

For some reason, my dual-USB iBook with 10.1.(whatever the current number is) all of a sudden will only sleep when I tell it to from the finder menu. Won't sleep on it's own at all, whether I close the lid or just leave it set for a while. Checked the energy saver prefs, everything is ok there. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Trace

sorry, no answers, looking for some too as I have a similar problem with a TiBook 667:
won't go to sllep if left open (sleeps well when lid is closed). No Ethernet or USB devices attached, just Airport card.

Cheers
Andreas

Or just set it atop a running washing machine.

I booted into 9 and still the same problem. Actually it is sleeping when left idle, just not when I close the lid. Must be a mechanical problem--anyone know where the sensor is on this machine that tells it the lid is closed?
