My iMac 8.1 is partitioned into separate accounts for wife and kids.  If I power up / use it / put it into Sleep mode, that works.  If my wife's account has been used and she has logged out and I try this sequence in my account, then the computer goes into Sleep mode for a few seconds before popping out again.  Repeatedly hitting Sleep doesn't help.  It sounds like a software issue on her partition carrying over after she has logged off.  Why?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
