Macs and sleep

That wouldn't wake up the computer remotely. :-(

The Mac's do not work well with sleep, and getting it working

properly is

tricky. The underlying UNIX was not designed for it.

What? I have never encountered any computer that handles sleep better than a Macintosh. Sleep is so reliable I not only use it every night on my iMac and PowerBook, but also when I go to lunch, or know I will be away from the computer for more than 15 minutes. Hit Command Option Eject and leave. It never fails. Plus any USB action (at least from correctly working USB devices) wakes it.

This has been discussed elsewhere. Kernel panics and driver problems. Problems getting UNIX scheduling working properly. Some hit it; others don't.

You sound as confused when you discuss physical phenomena as you do when you discuss linguistics.

Some things, I am to understand, just _are_ without being.

This might have been discussed elsewhere, yet discussion cannot replace my iBook's functionality, no matter how strong your faith is.

I sent a suggestion of a†workaround to the developers at Apple, which wrote back, thanking, saying they would investigate.

So the confusion is entirely within you.

You sent a suggestion of a workaround for what? I am not having the problem with my computer you claim I have.

Perhaps you are a little bit confused, given that you alone talk about that particular problem?
