Power Mac G5 sleep and video issue
Dual 1.8GHz Power Mac G5 (June 2004) here running Leopard. Known good display and DVI cable and Radeon 9600 XT.
Problem: occasionally when I put the computer to sleep, it won't go to sleep. The computer stops outputting video and the screen turns off (as it's supposed to), but the computer is still on, and doesn't go to sleep. Can't be woken back up, so to speak either, it's like its' stuck in limbo. This is intermittent and is fixed by a reboot. Haven't seen anything in the logs to indicate a problem.
Question: how do I reset the SMU/PMU on this model Mac? I've found directions for the slightly older and slightly newer models (one is unplug the power cable for a few minutes, the other is press the reset button on the logic board (can't seem to see one on my Mac.))
Second problem: sometimes video output will stop, the screen will turn blank for a second or so and will do this a couple of times in quick succession, then it's fine again for many days. Intermittent. Check connections between the Mac and the monitor and they're all fine.

It does have a CUDA switch (aka reset button), but different G5s have them in different places...check near the RAM slots.
