Pismo crashes during low power sleep with 10.2.8

Message #1 - Posted 2003/10/13 - Christopher Masi

Since upgrading to 10.2.8 the newer (6R73) my PowerBook Pismo crashes if it goes to sleep due to low power. Previously, I could run my battery down at night, put my powerbook in its bag, drive to work the next morning, plug it in, and get to work. Now, if I put my Pismo in its bag after it goes to sleep because it is out of power, it will not wake up the next morning.
I am running a Pismo with 640 MB RAM, which is an unsupported configuration, and I wanted to know if anyone with a supported RAM configuration is seeing the same problem. If not, I'll have to go down to a supported configuration and test it. I would hate to crash my computer again unless I realy have to.

Thanks,
Chris

Not here ...

What's a supported configuration?

I have a gig in mine.

You may have a marginal battery ... I see that after an extended sleep, it takes a while longer to get to full charge than it did before.

It's not what you don't know that'll hurt you - it's what you _do_ know that isn't so.

Thanks for the datum.

According to the party line, 512 MB is the max for a Pismo. (Has Apple chnaged that tune?)

I don't know if it is the battery. The battery is only 8 months old, and I get 3 hrs (+/- a bit) of time off a full charge. I reset the power manager, and I will test to see if that helps.

Thanks,
Chris
