MacOS 9.1, Post-Sleep Lethargy

Message #1 - Posted 2001/07/25 - Craig McFarlane

TWIMC,
I have a smurftower which works fine - except when I put the system to sleep. Thereafter, it's as slow as a wet week. Nothing significant seems to be happening according to Peek-A-Boo. The problem disappears if the system is restarted, so it's nothing permanent.

Even display sleep causes the slowdown.

This 9.1 system is part of a OX X/9.1 hybrid - I'm running 9.1 full-time, as I can't get it to work under X without going on an extension hunt (it'll boot 9.1 under X with extensions disabled, but that's not a solution). Sleep works fine under X.

9.1 worked as expected on a previous OSX-less install.

My workaround has been to disable all sleep, and turn off monitors manually.

Anyone else noticed similar behaviour? Any suspects?

There is a change in the with USB devices after a sleep.
The only one I know the details of is the iDock. This will not initialise printer or modem ports until after the iMac has been to sleep.

Maybe you have something plugged in to USB ?

I do as it happens. I have the hockey-puck mouse, and a MyTV unit. I tried unplugging the MyTV box and it made no difference. I'll experiment with these again to make sure.

I have the same problem. Only started a few weeks ago. I am running a Rev B iMac with OS 9.1 w/o X. A real pain in the ass, as I keep my address book on the machine and use an autodialer.

I unplugged everything except the mouse, and still have the same problem. It's not any of the active USB devices.

The Canon USB Camera Extension shows up on Peek-A-Boo (it is behaving itself though). I'll try disabling that in Extension Manager and see what happens.
