I've seen mention of this problem here and there and I just can't figure it out.
My iMac won't sleep when it is left idle for a period of time designated in Energy Saver. The screen goes out, the drive spins down, but no pulse sleep at all.
This is the case with OS9.1 and with 9.0.4 and, yesterday, I even reformatted my drive, zeroed all data, and reinstalled OS 9 from the CDs that came with the machine. And, still NO SLEEP.
May sound minor, but when I run a backup, I don't like to wake in the morning to find the iMac still humming. Any conflicts you can think of? I have tried a lot of things already.
PS: The machine sleeps manually and also when scheduled to sleep at a certain clock-time.
