    I have a MP 3,1 and when I manually put it to sleep, it goes to sleep, however when I move my mouse or press the power button to bring it back, I either get a black screen with the beach-ball or a white screen with my mouse pointer. Any ideas?

    Some back round, I have a 5770 driving three 23" LED monitors, all four drive caddies are full, plus I have another drive and an SSD in one optical bay as well as a bluray drive in the other optical bay. I also have an external FW800 drive bay for backups.

    Thanks.

    Is it an Apple 5770 or a flashed/non-flashed PC card?

    It will be hard for us to guess. You have to try removing the drives one by one to see which is the culprit. It should be the drives.
