    I am running the latest version of Leopard 10.5.5 build 9F33 and during the night when the computer is put to sleep, it will wake unexpectedly. I think I remember reading about this somewhere but I can't find it.

    Is there a fix for this?? It is very annoying because the screen LIGHTS up the Room at night!!!!!:mad:

    I've had the same problem before with my iMac G5 running Tiger and always updated to the current software. :confused:

    What kind of Mac do you have? From the sounds of it, you might have an iMac or Mac Pro. I don't know what might be causing it (other than an oversensitive mouse picking up small vibrations), but you should be able to stop it from waking up with a little tweaking in Terminal. I've only ever used it on notebooks, but it should work with a desktop too.

    Sorry, I have an Aluminum 2.4GHZ Imac with 3GB of RAM and a 500Gig HD. I have a 1TB Lacie External HD for time Machine.

    As far as an over sensitive mouse, my iMac only wakes from sleep with a keystroke, not mouse movement.
