When I sleep my iBook (indigo clamshell), it does not dim to a black screen like it is supposed to...Instead I het a multicolor static looking screen...the hard drive does appear to power down and the green light slowly blinks as usual in sleep....Any ideas on the strange screen...any solutions...does it even matter?

Would you mind posting a photo? My first thought is that it might be a graphics driver problem, but the screen shouldn't even be on. Hopefully it's not logic board-related. :o

Crazy. Maybe try resetting the PRAM (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=2238). I'd keep all your data backed up in case this ends up being the logic board failure. :o
