    I recently bought a second hand Powerbook G4 1.67. It came without a hard drive so i put a new drive in and installed Leopard on it.

    The problem, before I upgraded it to 10.5.7 sleep mode would work fine but since the upgrade after waking up from sleep only the mouse will work and the rest of the screen is frozen.

    Anyone else have this problem or know of a fix?

    have you installed any wireless adapters lately? I had the same problem with my mac pro. Try upgrading to 10.5.8. Click on the apple icon in the upper left hand corner and click on software updates. then it will show a leopard 10.5.8 upgrade. Run that and that could fix the problem.

    That didn't work nor NVRAM/PRAM. Tried deleting the pref file and again no joy.
