Hello Hello,
I have notice that my iMac 500, since installing 9.2.1, won't go to sleep. I have checked in the preferences that it would sleep when pushing Shutdown button.
I received, when trying to do it, the following note:
"Your computer can't sleep because some system software is missing. Reinstall the software that came with your computer"
What does it mean?
What should I do?
Another strange phenomena:
The OpenTransport extension now loads after rebooting first before the Virex something I didn't have in 9.1.
Any suggestions

The opentransport is loading before my Norton AV too.
Maybe it is a good thing????
You can try to delete the energysaving preferences and look what happens after a restart.I know mine imac didn't wakeup.and that had something to do with energysaving.
(look in the macfixit forum,there are a few threads there about this problem)

From what i understood, the OT first loaded is a good thing, and intentionally done by Apple.
My problem is the EnergySaver.
I have downgraded to the version of 9.1 and trashed the preferences. It did fix the problem.
I need help.

I've had exactly the same problem and received the same Apple message on my iMac DV 400 since upgrading to Mac OS 9.2.1 from 9.1. My main goal is Screen Blanking after 5 minutes of inactivity -- which no longer works.

I tried trashing the Energy Saver Prefs and even reinstalled 9.2.1. Other than this little problem, Mac OS 9.2.1 seems to be working well for me.
