    This may be a stupid question, but when I first got my iMac, it seems like the sleep light blinked faster than it does now. Is this normal? I remember thinking that it looked like it was breathing....now it blinks so slow I'm afraid she's gonna suffocate :p

    Are you having problems with the computer waking up from sleep...if not then it might be your mind playing those tricks:)

    Nope, doesn't seem to have a problem waking up. It probably is my mind playing tricks, I just thought that the rate of pulse of the sleep light might mean something. Thanks :)

    my pb's light has become completely random: blinking, pulsing, and staying on! I guess this would be a hardware issue? Do you think applecare would cover it?

    If this is not indicative of a problem with the system, I don't care.

    I would say yes, I bet they'll cover it.

    I think this explains some of my strange sleep light behavior:

    The iMac will not sleep automatically. If I choose sleep from the apple menu it seems to work fine. Does this look right? I have it set to sleep in one minute.

    I think this is definitely a problem, and apparently lots of people are experiencing the same thing. No real answers yet, and I've done a lot of searching and experimenting.
