My iMac didn't wake up this morning. So neither did I. Usually when I leave my computer, I manually put it to sleep. I have a few programs that are timed to run. An alarm clock is one, EyeTV to record television programs is another. Until last week, I had no problem. At the appointed time, the iMac would wake up, sound the alarm, record the program, or whatever. As of this week it doesn't happen. I can put the computer to sleep, and I can wake it up with key presses, but it doesn't automatically wake up when it's supposed to. I think the problem began a couple of days ago when I returned from vacation. During vacation, I had the computer off and unplugged, and it hasn't behaved properly since I returned. A few more symptoms: I'm not sure it's going to sleep properly. It used to take a few seconds for the computer go to sleep (and sometimes it took a long time, which was annoying), and I could hear clicks, I think from the attached hard drives going to sleep. Now the computer screen goes blank instantly, but I hear no clicks. I can't tell if the computer is asleep behind the blank screen. I have set in Bluetooth preferences not to allow Bluetooth devices to wake up the computer (I use a Magic Mouse and I wired keyboard). Mouse clicks didn't do anything before, but now a mouse click does make the screen light up. This makes me think the computer isn't really asleep (but it's not quite awake either, as programs don't run). Last weirdness, I have the computer set to announce the time every half hour. When I wake the computer from sleep by hitting the keyboard, it announces the time, even if it was 20 mins. ago, and the alarm will go off, even if it's now late. I wasn't entirely sure where to post this; I hope it's a software problem, and I'm running Lion. I'm not sure where to begin troubleshooting. Any thoughts on what's going wrong or what to try?
