    Is anyone else having problems where their monitor wakes up despite nothing moving the mouse (I have my wireless mouse turned off completely) or hitting the keyboard? My monitor wakes up constantly throughout the night, waking me up with it. In Tiger this never happened. This is happening whether I use the hot corner or slide the slider to 1 min. Can anyone think of a reason why it would wake up on me? For the past few nights I've had to completely shut down my mac (I can't sleep it, the breathing light annoys me).

    Update

    Ocelot,
    I'm thinking it may be my IMac G5 renewing it's IP address from my wireless router. It's the only other thing I could think of as far as activity "in the night"

    I don't have a wireless router, but could a wired router cause the same (I have an iMac G4)? I also think some of it is my wireless mouse reconnecting to its base (except for the times I turn my mouse off completely). None of that caused Tiger to wake the monitor, so hopefully they'll fix this in Leopard.
