Walked past my G4 today, noticed the power light pulsing in deep sleep mode. Since I've got a full load of pci cards that don't/didn't support deep sleep, it never happened before. Must be fixed with 9.1. Cool.

Anyone else?

Very interesting. I love the deep sleep feature and used it for a long time until I installed a 2nd video card (ATI XClaim VR 128) that did not support deep sleep. Just curious if you might list the PCI cards you have that are NOW supporting the deep sleep feature. I sure would like to get this functionality back, but I always figured it was an ATI issue.

- thx

Systems that don't support deep sleep now go into coma and require hard restart if Energy Saver is enabled. Using Sleeper helps avoid not being able to wake up from sleep - dim monitor (or turn it off) and spin down disk drives and have the fan running.

I'm not at the machine right now, but I believe I last left it with an Adaptec scsi card (the cheapest, slowest one, don't remember the model number), a Midiman delta 44 audio card, and a voodoo 3 3000.

Greg - could you elaborate a bit? I'm having a hard time following what you're trying to say. What systems? What is Sleeper? Etc.

Thanks

My 7500 ignores the sleep command from both the menu and the keyboard button since I installed 9.1

I'd rather that than have to restart after it went into a coma, but come on Apple! The 7500 was (i.m.h.o.) a Perfect Machine! why'd ya have to go and break it? Anyone else with this same problem or a fix?

Ok, so I'm a big fat liar. Turns out it was just because it was a fresh install of 9.1 and the drivers for the cards weren't installed yet, duh. So much for trying to spread a little sunshine about 9.1 amidst all the reports of trouble.

All non-PCI machines don't support deep sleep, and many PCI boards don't support that mode either (it's called "hibernate", I think).

Sleeper is a third-party control panel that does the same thing as Energy saver, but usually better and more compatible with strange configurations.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
