I have a pismo G3 powerbook, running OS X 10.3.7, with no peripherals attached. 320mb ram, original 10gb hard drive.
As of a few days ago, this machine takes one to five minutes to fall asleep. If I select ``sleep'' from the apple menu, the screen immediately goes black, but the power light takes a few minutes to start pulsing. During that time, the machine is completely unresponsive, that is to say, it won't wake up. I imagine I can hear a very faint high-pitched sound that disappears once the light does start pulsing. After the light begins to pulse it wakes up as normal if a key is pressed.
The machine is four years old and has its original PRAM battery. Might that be the culprit; or perhaps a failing hard drive? Other ideas?
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
