    HI,

    4/12/10 10:06:47 PM com.apple.SystemStarter22 /Library/StartupItems/HP


    If you haven't checked, open System Preferences/Accounts then select the Login Items. If you have any apps listed there to launch when you boot your iMac, delete them.

    Another place to look is /Library/Startup Items

    If startup items aren't causing the glitch then try Resetting the PRAM

    Running the Apple Hardware Test might be a good idea too.

    Sorry, but hibernatemode 0 is not the problem. I have been running in this mode ever since I bought this Mac.

    Installing v1 of the comboupdate in safe mode also did not solve the problem. I will attempt this again with v1.1, but I am going on record now in predicting that this will NOT solve the problem.

    Apple made significant changes to sleep behavior in 10.6.3. I highly doubt that this is an installation issue.

    Once again, Apple refuses to acknowledge a problem with a new revision. 10.5.6 refused to sleep, the opposite of this problem. It took them months before they admitted to a firmware incompatibility with certain Macbook Pros. I expect the same from them this time around.

    I think I may know whats causing this. It seems that im unable to sleep my computer after using my HP C5500 scanner.


    Congratulations on solving your problem.

    Is there something I can do to maybe fix it, if its the printer?


    I have two suggestions:

    1) Check with HP for a software update.

    2) Use the Activity Monitor utility to identify that guilty process and kill it after you're done scanning.

    There is a lot listed in activity monitor. Any idea how I could narrow the search down?


    Nothing guaranteed. I have one suggestion might cause the list to become larger: Set the drop-down list at the top of the Activity Monitor to "All Processes". Then search for something that mentions HP and/or scanning. You might also look in the "Login Items" tab of the Accounts panel of System Preferences for anything from HP.

    I'm having exactly the same issue with my white macbook. After updating to 10.6.3 when I close the lid of the computer the display turns off but the little light doesn't 'breath' like when it's asleep it stays on. When I open the computer the display turns on as normal, but without a mouse cursor and it won;t respond to anything! So to get it to work I have to hard restart.

    I updated with software update first, then tried the combo update. When I did the combo update I got and error message about something in Library/GUID............ But the install was success, also constantly repairing my permissions and verifying my disc. I do have 10.6.2 time machine backups but don't really want to do that unless in necessary.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
