OSX, Adaptec SCSI, & sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2002/01/22 - Dawn Yancy

Last I heard (end of December) you still couldn't put a Mac to sleep if you had several (all?) of the cards in a PowerMac, and Adaptec did not have any info as to when an updated driver with a fix would be out.

Did that sleep-issue bug ever get fixed for Adaptec SCSI cards and OSX?

No, it didn't. Some Darwin Developers are currently looking into it. http://www.lists.apple.com/archives/darwin-development/ It just got redirected to the driver development list, so look around for that archive too.

It must affect only certain system/card combinations...it has never come up on my B&W G3/400 with an adaptec SCSI card.

That machine was not capable of deep sleep (PCI bus powered down), as I recall.
