Reproducible sleep-wake problem

Message #1 - Posted 2003/10/03 - Tim Murray

System: PowerBook 17" G4, OS 10.2.6

Sleep and wake has never been a problem except under one condition: If I use up the battery while watching a DVD. I've tested this three times: 1) Unplug the AC and watch DVDs until the system shuts down. 2) Plug in the AC. The system will not wake up.

I have to unplug the AC and remove the battery for a minute or two to get it to wake up again, whereupon the movie starts playing right where it left off.

Anyone see this?

try resetting the PMU (power management unit) -
on a poewrbook I am not sure how to do this - check Apple's web site for directions -
this often solves sleep problems
