    I've been getting them a lot lately. I don't know what's causing it. Maybe someone who knows more about this stuff can decode this and tell me what the problem might be. In the first week of Leopard it was because of Azureus, but then I switched clients, and worked well until this week it's been acting up... Does this tell me anything?

    I believe your problem is airport.

    Are you connected wirelessly?

    Can you connect via cable and see if the problem is still there.

    Turn off your wireless before putting it to sleep to see if that helps.

    Perhaps Azureus wasn't the problem but exacerbating it.

    Hmm... Yea I connect wirelessly. Ethernet doesn't reach up to my room. Could it be because of too much bandwidth being used up?

    It is down to a bad driver/bad hardware (might want to phone apple). All the bandwidth usage would be doing is making it more frequent, it isn' the root cause of the problem.

    More than likely a bad driver problem on Apple's end, one of the big issues that Apple really needs to deal with.

    Apple has finally been dealing with the issues nobody ever thought they'd take care of Nvidia-ATI conflict on Mac Pro, PCI deep sleep (took years), and these Airport issues that keep requiring patches on the router end ...

    I didn't have this problem when I had Tiger. Does Leopard have anything to do with it?

    That is what I was thinking especially with leopard release however I just wanted them to be fully aware of all the possibilities.

    Chances are that apple changed the driver in Leopard and it is buggy and you are seeing the result of this.

    It's a bug in the driver. Apple knows about it, but as far as I can tell has not released a fix for it.

    Not waking: looks familiar to me

    Hi,
    I had problems too with a computer not wanting to wake up.
    Do you use bluetooth?
    I figured out that in my case bluetooth is the problem. Combined with 10.5.1 it makes my mac freeze after a while and i have to do a forced reboot.
    I have temporarily disconnected my bluetooth adapter and use my wired mouse again, hopefully in 10.5.2 the problem will be solved.
