Powerbook insomnia

Message #1 - Posted 2005/08/21 - AJ

I have a 1.25ghz 15" PowerBook that is having trouble sleeping. When i close the lid it is not an issue, i can even get Cocktail to make it sleep after running Pilot. But the energy saver in OS X is not putting it to sleep when inactive with the normal power settings. Maybe it's an app but even on a clean reboot with no apps running, same scenario. Can a clear something or reset a preference?

running 10.4.2 with latest security updates.

thanx

I had that AntiVirus thing loaded for a long while and my PowerBook would never sleep.
I removed the thing a while ago, it wasn't finding anything but PC viruses in email messages and since removal, my PowerBook sleeps properly.
