Slow to Sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2006/10/24 - Sally Shears

I always put my PowerBook (Al, 1.25GHz) to sleep from the Apple menu.

Until now, it went to sleep pretty much instantly.

Now, it takes 20-30 seconds before the screen blacks and the machine is to sleep.

Anyone have an idea what's going on and what to do about it?

It could be doing Spotlight indexing, or it might be some sort of network issue. m.

I've found that it's something using the sound hardware. When this happens to me, I log out and it sorts itself out.
