Sleep problem when restarting after power failure

Message #1 - Posted 2003/09/24 - Ian Latham

I have set up my PowermacG4 (running 10.2.6) to restart automatically after a power failure. We had one last night. The restart worked well, but it went into sleep mode (I have set it to 'never' sleep) and my website was unavailable. Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening?

Sorry to post a "meee tooo", but I have the same problem with a rev.A iMac. I suspect the PRAM battery, but wont bother to change it as the machine is an old POS anyway ;)

Hmm, this is the second time this has happened. The first time I just thought....huh? But now it's a real pain. In both cases the system was back up and running just by hitting the space bar on the keyboard
