Powerbook G4 - kernel panic on sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2008/01/17 - dunkan

G4 1.67, 2gb, running 10.5.1

It's happy to go to sleep IF it triggers this itself; but if I close the lid - or select 'sleep' - it almost immediately throws a kernel panic. This is NOT happening when it wakes up - it's before it actually sleeps... except when it chooses to sleep itself!

Anyone any ideas? Please?

Check the crash log and see what it says.

Open Applications->Utilities->Console

then look in the upper corner of the console window for a button that allows you to review the various log files that Mac OS X maintains.
