Wake from sleep issues - 160GB ATA Barracuda

Message #1 - Posted 2007/10/20 - Andy

Hi there.

Having an issue with a Seagate Barracuda drive. It just won't wake from sleep.

Any suggestions? I've looked and found threads detailing issues with other Barracuda drives taking 90 seconds to wake, but they mainly seem to be referring to SATA rather than ATA drives. This drive won't wake at all, the machine needs to be powered off then back on.

Cheers,
Andy.

Check Seagate's web site for technical assistance.

I actually used the 'chat' function off the technical support section of the website, all three that I spoke to claimed to never had heard of the issue. No-one there was particularly Mac-savvy, either.
