POWERBOOK G4 w/airport & bluetooth disabled awakens while closed.

Every few days the turned off and closed laptop sitting on a table will show that slowly winking led just above the button on the front that is pressed to "open" (raise) the top; meaning it's turned itself on for some unknown reason

Items connected are an external speaker and a Kensington trackball

and AC charger connected to an AC strip that has been turned off.


Its realized the battery could be removed, but that is the last resort



Is this 'spooks' or what??

PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11), PwrPC G4 (1.1) 17" CPU spd 1.5

    Are any of the "restart after" options under the energy saver checked, in System Preferences?
