    My mac goes into sleep mode when i play world of warcraft... it hasn't done it when im doing anything else... i have all the stuff turned off so it shouldnt ever go into sleep mode or screen saver mode, unless i tell it too!! Anyone know why?... Its a Mac OS X version 10.5.8

    OS X should only go to sleep / screen saver mode when no input is detected from any source - game pad, keyboard, or mouse. It's entirely possible that you've run into a bug that has been fixed in a newer OS X version, though I cannot confirm this easily.

    It sleeps? There's no kernel panic? It does sound like a bug though. Have you tried to update your OS?

    Thats strange. It sounds like you might really suck at gaming and the computer falls asleep from boredom? Maybe simply not sucking is the answer?
