slow wakeup on G4 1.42G with 10.3.x

Message #1 - Posted 2004/03/30 - Martin Frost me at stanford...

I'm seeing a slow wakeup (34 seconds) from sleep on my 1.42GHz G4.

I had been running 10.2.3 with no such problem, but when I recently installed a second disk and and put Panther on it, the sleep wakeup problem hit immediately.

I installed 10.3 and immediately updated to 10.3.2. From then on the machine has taken about 34 seconds to wake up from sleep every time (unless I've booted into 10.2.3, which still exists on the original disk). I've updated to 10.3.3 and the problem persists.

Upon wakeup from sleep the screen comes alive within a second or two but the cursor is not visible until about 34 seconds after the wakeup started, and I can't actually do anything during that 34 seconds (though several times I've been able to crash the machine by trying to do something instead of waiting).

The machine has 1.5 GB memory, two ATA disks (original 120 GB with 10.2.3 on the ATA100 channel and a new 250 GB with 10.3.3 on the ATA66 channel in one of four partitions), and an Apple HD Cinema display.

I've tried repairing permissions, running DiskWarrior, removing the 1GB of non-Apple memory, and removing the external devices (UPS/USB, EyeTV/USB, CD-RW/Firewire). Doesn't help.

Any ideas what might be delaying the wakeup for 34 seconds?

Is the drive taking a long time to come up to speed from sleep?

It's probably time to change my sig line, eh?

Doesn't seem to. Judging from the sound of the disk, it's there in a couple of seconds. Also, from a cold start, 10.3.3 takes about 5 seconds less to boot up than 10.2.3 does, so no disk slowness from a cold start.
