wake up problem osX

Message #1 - Posted 2003/10/02 - Bob &/or Barbara

I have a G4 467Mhz DT using 10.2.6.When waking up, the clock will start counting from the time I put it to sleep. I can move the cursor, but nothing will open. Can't start Internet Connect. The button looks like it tries to work, but nothing happens. Forced restart will get it back to normal.

Got any ideas?

I had a bad firewire device that was causing boot and wakeup problems for me. But not like you're describing. But it might be something for you to rule out (unplug optional USB &/or firewire devices and see if the behavior changes)

same as I suggested to someone else -
try resetting the PMU (power management unit)

to do this:

-turn it off
-unplug the power
-open the case and locate (do not push yet) a small button it is often labeled 'CUDA' and usually sits near the lithium battery. -pull the lithium battery
-count to 10
-push the button once
-put the machine back together

G4 400, 10.2.8(r1) though I've had the following since 10.2.4 (which I went to as soon as I had 10.2. installed).

counting from the time I put it to sleep. I can move the cursor, but

I don't usually sleep my CPU (I have never-ending background processes that I want to keep going), but have my monitor set to sleep instead. I've noticed that sometimes (cause unknown) it won't wake from this sleep. My 'worked every time so far' fix is simply to press the power button (putting the machine into full sleep), and then wake it again.

nothing will open. Can't start Internet Connect. The button looks like it tries to work, but nothing happens. Forced restart will get it back to normal.

Got any ideas?

Can you re-sleep it by pressing the power button for a second or so (not 5+ as that will turn the machine off)? Maybe it just needs a slightly longer lie-in :-)

Have Fun
