    on my MBP, whenever i want to sleep it, it takes a good 15-20 seconds for it to completely go into sleep mode. the screen goes black instantly, but the hard drive and fans keep on spinning for an other 20 sec. and also when i want to shut it down, it take about 30 sec for it to turn off. it stays on my background with that little spinning wheel at the bottom for a while before it shuts off. i never experienced this with tiger. does anyone else experience this?:apple:

    the sleep issue is the system writing the contents of your RAM to hard disk, so if you lost power for whatever reason, the system could still wake from sleep. There is a way to turn this off if you google for it. Its called safesleep. But then if you do lost power, you lose all your work along with it. This should have happened in tiger also though.

    problems

    i have experienced these issues with a MacBook Core 2 Duo 2.0, but *not* with a PPC G4 1.25. Apple T/S said to clear logs, blah, blah but nothing helped. i did an erase and install and the issue still remains with the MacBook. The G4 install was an upgrade over 10.4.10, no problem. :confused:

    My MacBook takes a lot longer to sleep and shutdown and to wake up as well than it did under Tiger. If it means a snappier running system then I don't mind but I can see it annoying a lot of people.

    The more I look-up this issue across the web the more I see a trend. It looks like those of us that upgraded to Leopard rather than doing a clean install are all suffering start-up, sleep, log-out and shutdown issues of a sort. I even get the following error:

    11/16/07 2:44:50 AM com.apple.SystemStarter[29] Shutdown failed: Cannot find license file. (-1,359:2 "No such file or directory")>

    When that happens during shut down, it just DOESN'T shut down, I end up having to force it.

    Either Apple has got to release something to clean-up the startup/sleep/shutdown/logging procedures, or they're gonna have more than a few complaints on their hands... in the meantime, does anyone have any ideas on how to correct these errors other than through a clean install? I really don't want to have to go through reinstalling everything I have on this laptop... would take me the better part of two days...

    Shut Down - TOO LONG!

    I mind! I would NOT have upgraded if I knew it would SLOW our machines down in any way, shape or form. I disagree that it is "snappier" while running and am unhappy that it now takes so long to shut down.

    The MBP needs to shut of VERY QUICK and get into my bag to get going. It's a laptop = portable. It needs to not make ME stand around waiting for IT).

    I upgraded and have this problem.

    Looks like I'll have to clean install.

    After I installed 10.4.11 it takes 30-40 seconds for my MBP to sleep. Anyone have similar problems or fixes for the problem?
