MacG5 dies instead of sleeps

Message #1 - Posted 2006/04/17 - tgaryet

Hi,

I'm having a problem withe sleep mode on my Mac. It is a G5 iMac OS X version 10.3.9.

I always had it auto-sleep after about 15 or 20 minutes of no activity. This worked fine until one day, it took a full reboot to bring it back to life.

I found out that if I manually put it to sleep, it would immediately wake up, but if I put it to sleep and came back a few hours later, it required rebooting.

I ran the hardware check, and everything passes.

I reloaded OS X from the discs (just a reload, not a format and reload). After this, when entering sleep mode, the light only blinks once, then goes out - needing a reboot.

I updated again to 10.3.9. One blink and then dies.

I've been looking at the system console logs. I'm getting a bluetooth Unsuccessful Handshake error, but I don't know if this is because the system is going to sleep, or if something is wrong with the bluetooth.

I think this is the relevant part of the system.log.

Any other logs to look at, or suggestions on how to get the going would be appreciated.
