    When my G5 iMac goes to sleep, it no longer "breathes" (light fade in and out). Does anyone know why or what prompts this? I changed some of my power savings settings a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't happen to notice if they coincided. It's not really a big deal, I just want to make sure it's not indicative of a problem.

    It's normal for the light to fade in and out. That indicates that the Mac is sleeping. Hence it has been called breathing.

    No, it's just solid white. I should check first thing in the morning - maybe it's just delayed because of some setting I changed. Or maybe it has REM sleep and regular sleep :)

    I know that's normal - it's not doing that anymore - that's why I'm concerned.

    I'm sorry I misunderstood. :eek: If it were mine I would give Apple a call or take it to a local Apple Store or reseller. Having it checked in person is easier IMHO. Good luck. ;)

    Probably not a problem, like on my my G4 ibook which crashes all the time if you nudge it, but for some reason you can't make it crash on purpose.

    When I put my iMac G5's moniter to sleep, it is a sold white light. When the hard drive is out to sleep if flashes.
