Won't sleep in 9.2

Message #1 - Posted 2005/01/29 - TonyG

Recently installed a PCI USB card in a G4 desktop MDD. When I have 9.2 running (not in Classic) to use PageMaker I find I can't put the machine to sleep. Apple System Profiler reports that sleep is disabled because of the PCI card installation - even when there is no powered-up unit connected to the card. There's no problem with sleep using Panther. Any ideas of a way round this please?

Possibly there may be a firmware upgrade to the card, but unlikely. I think you're probably stuck with it.

There were similar problems with some Adaptec SCSI cards some years ago.
