After installing 10.5.7 from combo update, I can now only sleep my mac once. Second time it does not sleep, instead it freezes.
It does this consistently.

I found another user with the same issue:
+Peter Hull+
+After applying the 10.5.7 Combo update, my MacBook freezes consistently the second time I put it to sleep. In other words, sleep works once, but the second time I close the lid or choose "Sleep" from the menu, it freezes before it has a chance to sleep (i.e., the screen backlight stays on, the sleep light doesn't start "snoring", etc+

Anybody got any solution?

    I have the exact same problem. On another forum it was suggested that removing Application Enhancer (in System Preferences panel) would fix it, but it doesn't help me as I don't have Application Enhancer in the first place...

    Howdy,

    I've got a Macbook Pro from Autumn 2007 (model 3.1) and under 10.5.7 it all too often won't go to sleep and then won't wake up. The mouse arrow disappears and it will go to a dark screen, but is clearly not off, and seems to be saving memory to the HD but it never goes to sleep. This occurs randomly; sometimes everthing works fine.

    Good Luck,
    Herbert Schulz

    Hello, I am the "Peter Hull" referred to in the original post, which was referencing a comment I posted on the Macintouch "10.5.7 Update" reader report. Some further information: I made a complete CCC backup of the MacBook, reformatted the drive, and reinstalled the original 10.5[.0] from the DVD which came with the machine. The problem does not occur in this configuration. Also, the other problem that I mentioned in my Macintouch pos, which I believe might be related--that of the machine freezing when switching off the AirPort card after one sleep cycle--also does not occur in the original install. After installing the 10.5.7 Combo Update, the sleep freeze reoccurs, but the wireless powerdown freeze does not.

    Note that there were no changes made to the defaults on installing 10.5[.0], and no changes were made before upgrading to 10.5.7. This occurs with a completely vanilla 10.5.0 -> 10.5.7 installation. I'm going to redo the install with 10.5.6 to see what happens there.

    Any help on this issue would really be appreciated.

    Wow. Now that changes some things. So, it appears that it's not any specific software installed that makes the problem occur, but 10.5.7 itself!

    My MBP is having problems also, so I'm considering reformatting and upgrading to 10.5.6 (if I can find this updater).

    Update: as expected, the sleep freeze does not occur in a vanilla 10.5.0 -> 10.5.6 install. Interestingly enough, neither does the wireless power-down freeze. So apparently that latter issue (the wireless power-down freeze) is not relevant to this topic and was merely an anomaly on my system caused by something else.

    But the second-sleep freeze is, according to my research and testing, directly caused by the 10.5.7 update. Anyone at Apple listening? Do you all not test for being able to sleep a notebook, or does your script only try once?

    I went down the same re-install path. I got my original 10.5(0) dvd out and did an Archive and Install. Problem gone, I could do all the sleep cycles I wanted to, no problem (as I've always been able to up through 10.5.6.) I then applied the 10.5.7 combo installer. The problem immediately reappeared. Freeze on second sleep after rebooting. I've been a Mac fan for 17 years, but come on, this is simple and reproducible and does not relate to interactions with 3rd party software. Apple this should be easy to fix, get to it before it becomes the next Microsoft commercial!!!

    Unfortunately since upgrading to 10.5.7 I have the same issue with my MacbookPro3,1 (2.2 GHz Core 2 Duo) with Boot-ROM-version MBP31.0070.B07 and SMC version 1.16f8: when I shut the lid, the screen goes dark but the backlight stays on, the fans spin up due to thermal issues within a minute and when opening the lid again the computer does not wake up anymore but needs a hard reset.

    I was hoping it was adequately tested, because it took quite a while to get this update out. Many builds were sent to many developers. This is a rather shocking thing to overlook.

    I have observed this sleep lockup twice today. This is not good. Reporting as bug now...

    Couple more observations.

    It isn't a user account issue. The second-sleep freeze will happen if I click the Sleep button in the login window, outside any user account.

    I used AppleJack to delete the safe sleep image, but that didn't help.

    Trying to figure out if there is any preference or file that needs to be deleted or reset to alter how sleep happens. Any ideas, anybody? If none can be found, this really is a bad bug.

    Wondering if it has anything to do with kernel extensions. Is there anyone experiencing this bug who is not also running Parallels Desktop? OpenVPN?

    Yes, I have the same problem as OP after innstalling 10.5.7 on a system similar to
    alecond's.

    My first attempt to innstall 10.5.7 failed (combo update pakage) so firstly I assumed the update went wrong and that the buggy sleep/freezes where rooted in some files not been copied. Last night I reinstalled the update (w/o problems), but the freezes contiune.

    As most posters note freezes occur on the second sleep. This has noting to do with USB or other peripherals. And on a side note I don't have Parallels or OpenVPN.

    Options? Back to 10.5.6 (time machine "void")? Wait for Apple to fix the problem? Or at least give us MBP-users a better way to reset our books (reset-button-petition).

    More info:

    Reinstalling 10.5.7 combo: Does not fix it

    Disabling Safe Sleep via Terminal: Does not fix it

    Boot into Safe Mode, sleep from login window: Does not fix it

    Very strange and bad.

    Are there any associated messages in the /var/log/system.log file that indicate why sleep may be failing?

    I've got admittedly a newer MBP (MacBookPro4,1) but I've put it to sleep and have woken it back up numerous times since installing 10.5.7 with no issues.
