    Out of curiosity, why do you want to do that? :confused:
    Couldn't you leave the computer on all the time in sleep anyway?
    I don't think it's possible...

    Heh, no problem! :) Try doing the things that are on these three guides:

    http://guides.macrumors.com/Repairing_Permissions
    http://guides.macrumors.com/Resetting_NVRAM
    http://guides.macrumors.com/Maintenance_Scripts

    They do three different, non-overlapping things. I'm not certain that any of them is responsible for what you are seeing, but they are some standard things that may help. :)
