Currently Being ModeratedMar 19, 2006 9:08 PM (in response to frem001)Although switching off the secondary sleep function alleviated some problems, annoyingly enough it still has trouble waking from sleep (this is after an hour or two of sleep). went to an applestore spoke to a genius, he said it might be because one ram stick is from crucial ram, so i purchased ram from apple and reset the sleep setting value in terminal but it does the same thing. Thank you for the help though, it did help to a certain extent.MacBook Pro 2.0, PowerMac G5 2.7, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 18, 2006 12:08 PM (in response to frem001)I've had this same problem for a couple weeks now. At the Apple Store, they pulled my Crucial RAM and sent me packing. So, I gave the benefit of the doubt, returned the "bad stick" and got another. Same problem.
To be specific, mine would often restart instead of waking, or do nothing at all, forcing me to pop the battery out, or hold the power button to shut it off, then restart.
On my second trip to the store, today, they tried pulling the new Crucial RAM and replacing it with Apple RAM. That worked! So, they claim third party problems and I can't say they're wrong. However, it makes me wonder about proprietary settings in RAM, if that's even possible. I wonder if two sticks of Crucial RAM would work just fine? It's almost worth the try, as the cost is nearly half that of another 1GB of Apple RAM.
Not sure what I'm going to do as of today, might try another vendor for even less than Crucial to see if I have any luck, though I'm nervous to trust some other brand as though it might fix the sleep issue, it could be less reliable for more important usage.MacBook Pro 2.0, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 18, 2006 1:06 PM (in response to matt kreger)I don't think it's the RAM. I have the intermittent sleep disorder on one MBP 2.16GHz that has no extra RAM -- Apple or Crucial or whatever. I have another MBP 2.00 GHz with 2GB of RAM -- half Apple, half cheap 3d party. No sleep or other problems on that one. If you take the MBP and the problem to Apple, best to remove the 3d party RAM first to avoid tangential discussions.
