    I have a Core Duo mini 1.83. A few times this week when I tell it to sleep it goes to sleep. I see the little white light glowing up and down. But when I try to wake it by pressing any key on the keyboard it won't wake up.

    I can't figure out how to wake it up. I have to unplug it from the wall and reboot.

    I wonder what the problem is?

    Tapping the power button doesn't do anything on the mini. I have discovered only two solutions.
    1. press and hold the power button till the unit powers off
    2. unplug the mini (my surge protector has an on/off switch)

    Running Leopard, which I love with the Time Machine feature.
