Hey everybody. My new(old) Sawtooth keeps crashing on me. (ibook never crashed in 3 years) It only happens when it wakes up. All the other time, it flies. I'm running 10.4.2 on a G4 Sawtooth w/400 ghz. 1 GB ram, Seagate 160 GB hard drive. I turned off the option to put my hard drive to sleep, and that worked for awhile. Now, almost every time it sleeps, it crashes. I know a simple solution would be to just keep it from sleeping, but, um, I want to know what's going on. Thanks

Just exactly what kind of crash? Kernal panic upon awakening or something else?

Try to be as detailed as possible when describing the problem.

Any USB peripherals?

Time to shop for a new HD!

:)

HD is about............8 days old. The only USB connections I have are keyboard/mouse. I don't know if it's a kernal panic.....how do I know? There are 2 kinds of freezes. One is just a perpetual beach ball.The other is a dark gray box that appears in the middle of the screen. It says something like "Your computer needs to be restarted. Please hold down the power button until it restarts" or something like that. Then, when I restart it, it says something like, "OSX had to be restarted due to something or other (it doesn't give an example, it just says something like an unknown error. I'm not near my computer nor will I be until tomorrow, so that's the best I can do.

Sorry for not being too specific.

Sorry for the delay

Ok, it was asked what kinds of errors were coming up. I checked the logs, and here's what I got:

Well, all of your KP's have this module in the backtrace. That module is responsible for communicating with the ATA bus -- i.e. the hard disk controller. Big surprise, I guess. But it confirms that it is because of putting the hard disk to sleep / waking it up that you have trouble.

Also look at your console log -- I'm not sure how it works, if it gets scratched as soon as you reboot -- but if you can find an entry right before you get the panic, you can probably find out more about what it was trying to do -- specifically, whether things went awry putting it to sleep, or waking it up.

One thing I would also try in the meantime is to fsck the hard disk. You can do that by either booting into single user mode and running fsck -fy, or booting off the install / OS CD/DVD and running Disk Utility, and using the Repair Disk option. One possibility is that there is a logical problem with the hard disk that is causing the system to freak out when you try to put it to sleep.

The other major options I can think of are that your HD or ATA controller are going bad, or that you have a corrupt kernel module. If it's the first, you can replace it. If it's the second...I'm not actually sure what you can do, except maybe buy a bootable enclosure for your drive and move the drive out of the Mac and into it, so that it's not using the built-in ATA controller. If it's the third, you can try re-installing the OS. Probably with a hard disk reformat to be safe.

mkrishnan, thanks alot. I'm going to try what you suggested. I'm coming to think it definatly is something w/ my HD because I fooled around with it the past few hours, and when I select "put hard disks to sleep..." and then it goes to sleep, that's when I have my problems. I just don't know how to read all that technical stuff. Thanks again.
