Uhh, subject should read "mini refuses to sleep on its own." First time poster, hope someone can help! I've got something I can't seem to figure out going on with this mini (1.24 GHz/40GB/512 MB/Panther 10.3.9. The last time it actually went to sleep on its own must have been well over a year now. At first, I thought it was things I had running - WeathermanX in the dock, OS X VNC server, and I had some NFS exports going to my Linux box (/Users shared, as was my firewire LaCie drive but also running an NFS server on the Linux box, had a couple of its partitions mounted on the Mac.) Had some items under sharing enabled, such as Remote Login so I can ssh into the mac. However, I found that killing anything extra that was running, getting rid of my NFS shares, and disabling things such as remote login, it still wouldn't sleep on its own. It sleeps just fine if I tell it to either by the menu or power button. I finally got around to doing a clean install, but after I installed everything and had it set up similar to what it was previously, it still did not go to sleep on its own. That's when I decided to nuke it again and start over, setting the sleep interval to 1 minute and trying one thing at a time until I made it no longer go to sleep. I went to bed while it was installing, and this morning it was asleep. I woke it up, it was at the later stages of install where it needed my input. Once the install was complete, I set it to sleep after a minute and it did. Used Safari for a bit, didn't install anything else, then went off to work. It was sleeping this evening when I came back home. I then was looking for some weather stuff, thought maybe WeathermanX may have been keeping it from sleeping, so I tried weather dock. I started it up, looked at it for a minute then closed it out. Of course now, it is not sleeping. Deleted weather dock, rebooted, still no sleepy! If I tell it to sleep, it sleeps. I'm booting up with absolutely nothing running, the only settings I've changed were for the resolution and sleep time, that's it. It's still pretty much in its post-clean-install state, still won't sleep. Unless I make it. I'm not sure what I've done to break the previously sleeping install this time. Don't understand why it would work then just quit. *shrug* Anybody have any ideas on this one? TIA!
