Switch to login window upon sleep
Authored by: andrep on Jul 30, '04 05:22:56AM

I'm experiencing strange behaviour when the machine wakes from sleep, using this hint. Occasionally, the login window seems to lock up - I can enter exactly four characters of my password. On typing the fifth character, the machine beeps, and the login window then refuses to accept any further input. Oddly, the little black bullets that indicate character entry in the password field also fail to appear. This seems to happen at random, and when it does, the only solution seems to be to hit the power button, :-(

It looks as if something is not being iitialised correctly on wake-up. I am running some additional preferences (uControl, SideTrack), but these work fine under normal circumstances. Will post again if I find the cause.
