Wake up a MacBook that likes to sleep in
Authored by: Peter Kappesser on Oct 08, '07 01:19:06PM

Interesting revelation about the improved sparseimage format -- does that apply to non-FileVault sparse images as well? I use several for things like financial info, etc. so I should convert them to the new format if so.

Re: the main topic -- my PowerBook G4 sometimes has this issue, but I don't use any Microsoft applications. Most often the only thing running is Safari, with a lot of tabs open (I load up with my daily assortment of web sites to read on my break at work without a net connection). Same solution, just close the lid, wait for the sleep light to pulse, and reopen it to try again. Maybe it's related to virtual memory swapping for apps that are using a lot of memory?

AFAIK, this applies to all encrypted sparse disk images. If you have such an image you created before 10.4.7, you might want to create a new one and copy everything over.
