    tried moving the mouse, clicking it, hit every button on the key board....the only solution so far has been to tap the power button twice......

    Are you running Snow Leopard?

    I have a Mac Pro and since upgrading
    to SL my Mac goes to sleep very early
    and takes quite a bit of key pressing and
    mouse movement to wake it back up.

    Have read similar complaints from SL
    users about this.

    For now, I just go into PREFERENCES
    and extend the time I want for the
    computer to go to sleep.

    I am sure if this is a SL issue that it
    will be resolved in future updated.

    i have the computer set so that the computer itself doesnt go to sleep. I have it set so that just the display goes to sleep.....when i hit buttons i can hear the computer working, itunes works and everything....but the display will not wake back up.....
