    I have a PowerBook 12" on Tiger, 10.4.11. It is having occurences of waking despite the closed cover. The cycles of wake/sleep are sometimes quite fast (seconds). I fear thrashing the HD.

    Here are excerpts from system log, followed by console log. The latter shows repeated instances of:
    AlsPB12 /usr/sbin/AppleFileServer: AppleFileServer ResetATalkService race detected\n
    which seems to implicate ATalk - is that AppleTalk? What relevance does AppleTalk have in today's systems?

    system.log:

    Do you have "wake for Ethernet network administrator access" checked in system preferences? Maybe that's causing something. It seems like some network connection or service is causing AppleTalk to look for stuff, but I'm not sure. :(
