Mac doesn't wake up from keyboard

Message #1 - Posted 2007/11/02 - Maury Markowitz

Since installing Leopard my Mac Pro seems less interesting in waking up from sleep. It used to be that the first press of mouse or keyboard would do it, but for the last two days it seems to ignore this, and only a press of the front-panel power button will do it.

Is there a new pref for this somewhere? Anyone else seeing this?

Mine seems to wake so far (only had Leopard installed for a day or so) but I got a kernal panic immediately upon waking the machine this afternoon.

Upgraded my Mac Pro last night, "Archive and Update". Got a big yellow triangle with exclamation mark stating that it couldn't copy my user account settings or something. Only button was "reboot". Reboot rebooted the installation DVD. This time I did a plain upgrade. Leopard demanded I create a new administrator account and registration. My old account was no longer tagged as administrator.

Put it to sleep last night and a usual thing happened, it immediately woke. Always stayed asleep after the second time with Tiger, and it stayed asleep after the 2nd with Leopard.

This morning it only half woke. So I had to crash boot it with the power button.

OTOH my dual G4-867 MDD hasn't had only one issue, once after waking only one CPU was being used.

Well, it sucks for you, but I'm glad I'm not alone in experiencing Sleep/Wake weirdness.

Cheers,

Are you using a wireless keyboard?

Since I installed Leopard on my other internal drive, turning on the monitor no longer wakes my computer--- even when I'm not running Leopard (I'm back to 10.3.9 because Leopard can't seem to communicate properly with my AEBS) Now I have to press a key or mouse the mouse to wake up the computer. No wireless KB or mouse here.
