Hi, my mac sometimes wakes up from sleep but with no signal to the monitor. The fans start up again but its frozen (I know because trying to open the cd drawer doesn't work). I am using a Quicksilver dual G4 with the latest version of panther. Any thoughts?


Cheers

I have this problem as well, however I think it is due to either my Processor Upgrade or my ATA133 Card, have yet to figure out how to fix it.

Strange. I have a dual 1.3 upgrade and a ata133 card, and I'm running tiger. No problems. Sometimes I wake it up and hte mouse doesn't work so I unplug the mouse and plug it back in and it's fine, but all of my macs have done that for 5+ years.

hmm what kind of ata133 card do you have? I have an ACard 6280, and how about the Processor Upgrade? I have an owc 1.4 single.
