Broke my PB 12" !!!
Authored by: gabrielradic on Nov 22, '05 03:54:15AM

The script failed on my PowerBook 12", pre-latest revision.

The Mac went to deep sleep, but when it woke up it kernel-panicked, around the third notch in the progress bar.

A cold reboot didn't help, the computer kept trying to wake-up.

Single-user mode (Ctrl+S) is not active, but you can boot from another device. I used another PowerBook in Firewire mode.

Delete the file /private/etc/vm/sleepimage, it'll fix things.

I hope this helps.

I had the same issue later, since I still have to find a way to disable safe sleep. This time, I've booted the _broken_ powerbook in target mode, and deleted the file using the other Mac.

When I turned on the _broken_ powerbook, it still tried to wake up, and failed at the same point.

Weird.
