[OSX] Sleep Mode

Message #1 - Posted 2001/05/15 - Andrew J. Brehm

Is it possible that OS X has probolems going to sleep automatically?

I usually set sleep to 30 minutes, but it never goes to sleep, even when the screen saver is not running.

I set it to five minutes to see what happens, and what happens is that it just won't go to sleep.

Is your Sleep menu command enabled? Mine is disabled because I have a PCI SCSI card installed (although I think any PCI card will disable Sleep).

No. And I think it works "manually".

I have no PCI cards.

(Do you think Apple will fix this PCI card thingy?)
