    Hi

    I have a powermac G5 i am also using the bluetooth keyboard and mouse from apple.

    Every-time i try and put it to sleep it just wakes back up again in seconds.

    Does anyone know what could cause this?

    Have you tried turning off your BT keyboard and mouse, and then putting the computer to sleep?

    Doesn't pressing the power button put the computer to sleep (I know it does on my iMac)?

    Thanks it even sleeps with both the keyboard and mouse switched on if i press the power button.

    Yet if i turn the keyboard off and switch to sleep with the mouse via the apple menu (top left) it does go to sleep but wakes back up again after a few seconds.
