PB Problems continued

[ #28626 ]

The machine has been running quite ok - no freezes etc. but a new sort of problem have occurred and judging from the content of the discussions on the Apple site in the support section - I am not the only one.

So I am considering doing another OS reinstall, now that I have a bare laptop and before I start to roll the back-ups back on.

The problem is that the sleep mode no longer works, which is kind of annoying, I almost never shut down my old TiBook I always used sleep.

If the next reinstall does not fix this problem I will return the computer once again.

I was expecting to work on my new computer and I have tonnes of code I need to write, so all this Apple-Crapable is really starting to get on my nerves.

  • Hello,

    May I ask what your specific sleep problem is, and maybe for some pointers to forum threads?

    My TiBook recently stopped going to sleep -- the screen blanks and either I get the spinning beach ball, or a cursor that has nothing to point at. I can only get out of this state by using the power button to reboot.

    I haven't been able to find quite this set of circumstances in the Apple forums or other places, and it's rather obnoxious. ;)


    • Well the problem is that if I fold my laptop together it does not go into sleep mode - if I select the sleep mode from the menu, the pointer disappears and the machine freezes.

      I am currently experiencing problem with the Apple website [], where I could see that people had similar problems when search for "sleep", the posts are of newer dates (late january)

      Weird that it is easier to put my one year old son to sleep than the PB :-/
      • With Panther, I had sporadic problems with putting my 15" Aluminum PB to sleep after I added third-party memory (a 1 GB Kingston something or other). Sometimes it wouldn't come out of sleep when I closed the shell while sometimes it wouldn't go to sleep at all. (And sometimes it even worked.) Using 'Apple | Sleep' worked more often but every once it in a while it still put the machine into a permanent sleep.

        Upgrading to Tiger with the memory was impossible (it wouldn't even start) and I had to go back to

    • Putting the PB into sleep pushing the power-button and select sleep does not work either :-/
