Hi Guys,

Need some help with my iBook G3. If I tell it to go to sleep, the DVD clicks and the iBook wakes up straight away. So it is impossible to put it to sleep.

I have switched the memory and HD, I've tried OS9, OS X Panther, OS X Tiger with no result. The battery is dead and I have taken it out, but the sleep issue continues.

I've tried to reset Pram, PMU and NVram.

Can anyone help me?

It may be the battery, those all iBooks use a capacitor on the logic board and the battery as a PRAM. The PRAM controls sleep, so I guess it is the battery

Yes the lime and graphite ibook G3 466 DVD were as nfar as I know special order so harder to find. I have a lime.

Next I second the battery pull and depress power button then plug back in and turn on. Mine had no sound due the the issue. Different problem, both would be a pram hardware issue as previously stated.
