I have a 17” Macbook Pro connected to a 23” Cinema display with the lid closed.

When the Macbook Pro goes to sleep, eventually, the pulsating white light becomes a solid white light.

The problem only occurs with the Cinema Display connected.

The only way to get the computer to work after the occurrence is to hold the power button down until it turns off and then power it back up.

I would like to allow my computer to go to sleep with the Cinema Display connected.

Is there a solution?

    Leopard doesn't seem to like the USB cable used for the hub in your cinema display. Numerous people, including myself, are experiencing this problem. If you look at the Console log, you'll see that its a usbhci error.

    Here's the thread we're discussing it in, Apple has yet to release a fix. http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=6060790#6060790

    It only occurs with the Cinema Display's USB cable connected, all other USB peripherals are okay. You can just connect your keyboard directly your MBP.

    No, all they are used for is the USB/FireWire hub and to make the LED on the front of the display dim/brighten while your machine is asleep. Other than that, you're fine. Hopefully this will get fixed soon.

    Taylor_C, I think i'm having this trouble too... but I can't find the USB error in my sys log that you mentioned. Below is my sys log during the time I had to hard reset my computer 3 times due to black screen (well, first plug cinema in to sleeping macbook pro 10.5.2, get a brief leopard desktop flash, followed by blackness with no pulsing light on MBP, followed by me opening MBP to find only black screen, followed by hard reset). Here is my sys log... see anything interesting?? I'm wondering if Parallels is suddenly trying to mess with my USB drivers??? I am using the USB and firewire from the cinema display, will try plugging in to MBP instead.
