Tiger.2 stopped sleeping. Pointers? Fixes?

Message #1 - Posted 2005/08/22 - JoanD'arcRoast

Had this problem in Puma and Jaguar, never in Panther. Now it's back. Are there some prefs I can toss to make it behave?

G4 400 AGP, 896 SDRAM, no Haxies.

luck,

No clue here. I have had the same problem with a G4 450 (single processor) and a QuickSilver 933 through various versions of Jaguar and on Panther 10.x to present both running currently 10.3.4 on both Macs. I have stock G4 iMac on Tiger doing the same too.

The 3 will not auto sleep no matter what I set energy panel settings to. Both (iMac has only keyboard & mouse) have had various USB peripherals but makes no difference if minimal keyboard & mouse as well. All 3 will sleep if set manually.

Curiously I have a G4 iMac 1.25GHz stock with nothing but keyboard and mouse is doing the same no auto sleep with Tiger 10.4.2.

Curiously the G4 450 has trouble waking up after long sleep, about a 1-2 minute pause where nothing happens (no keyboard response or mouse response) and suddenly an audible click on speakers and mouse pointer appears and all is well. It seems like USB has trouble waking up. I have tried minimal USB devices, no USB hubs, different keyboards & mice, unplugging USB keyboard & mouse, plugging in different USB port on Mac etc, and no luck. It just has that long pause after a long sleep, where screen comes on but no cursor or keyboard response, no menubar clock update either for about 1-2 minutes. I do not have that particular trouble on the QuickSilver 933.

Sounds like USB voodoo much like the SCSI voodoo of the past OS 9.x at least on the G4 450.

I do have similar sets of various 3rd party stuff on all 3 including haxies. Did make some minimal effort in the past eliminating haxies but that too made no difference. Perhaps a clean bare bones system would sleep correctly. They did long ago.

All 3 are on a home LAN router all with WAKE ON NETWORK ADMINISTRATIVE ACCESS. But I also tried eliminating that with no LAN connection or toggle off the WAKE on LAN stuff with no change in sleep behavior.

Even tried starting with SHIFT down (safe mode) and does not seem to make difference.

I just gave up with some expectant hope each time OS is updated this might be fixed. I just manually sleep each Mac when I leave it.

Good luck, I never figured it out.

I can't get him put to sleep for long if iTunes is running (thought not playing). He wakes up and wants a glass of water in no time.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Yes, I've noticed that as well. Even Panther does not sleep if iTunes is open. I have to remember to quit iTunes before I get up from my chair.

My PowerBook running 10.4.2 will go to sleep by itself even if iTunes °s opened. You maybe have a background process that keeps the OS busy?
