    I installed Kubuntu 11.04 on a Rev. D Intel iMac I had lying around yesterday... works great, except for one very weird issue: The Mac refuses to stay in the asleep state. It randomly comes out of sleep and asks me for my credentials. I press Escape, and it goes back to sleep... for a while, then it does the same thing again. Weird. :confused:

    Try again with all non-essential peripherals disconnected. Check your config for any sort of wake-on-LAN, make sure it's disabled. Beyond that, the Ubuntu forums are going to be much more use than this will. Good luck.
