    Hi. I've had my new 17" iMac for about a month now, and over the past two weeks or so, it has taken on a weird habbit of waiting about 15 seconds after i push the button to actually fall asleep. Whether i push the power button, or select sleep from the Apple menu, it takes a good long time to actually go to sleep, which is pretty annoying. Anybody else have this problem? Anybody have any ideas as to how to fix this problem? I looked for another thread on this but couldna find one. Thanks for your help.

    Do you have an IMAP email account that might still be finishing off some synchronising? Sometimes my G5 iMac does the same thing. :)

    well i've got a pop email, but that doesn't get used that often and this happens consistently every time i put it to sleep. Thanks for the quick reply though.

    so either nobody's noticed this thread, or nobody's ever heard of this problem before? What could i possibly do to fix this? Should i call apple or something?
