MacOS X: not waking up from sleep properly (dim screen)

Message #1 - Posted 2001/12/04 - Steve Wilbur

Wallstreet 466 384/30gb, running MacOS X.1.1

Goes to sleep just fine. When waking up, the sleeping light goes off, can hear the hard drive, but screen will not come back on (it is extremely dim). I have to reboot to get the screen back.

Any ideas?

Before putting it to sleep try opening and closing the display preferences, then if the screen is blank upon waking push the screen brightness button and see if that makes a difference.

Pressing F2 (bightness) works for me.
