OS X :: MacBook Freezes Upon Waking Up From Sleep Mode

Feb 2, 2010

Whenever I close my computer to put it to sleep and then open it up later, the computer freezes and I am unable to type in my password to unlock my computer and am forced to hold down the power button until it turns off and then reboot it. This has become a major pain and has only started today but has happened 3 times already. I have an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and a Magic Mouse connected to my computer and am running 10.6.2 if that helps. I'd rather not have to shut down my computer all the time and I'm no longer covered by any protection.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Screen Saver Freezes When Waking

Mar 17, 2012

After waking up my computer from sleep I find that the screen saver always locks/freezes and becomes pixelated. I move my mouse around and it sort of "erases" the saver to reveal the login page underneath. This happens on my new iMac (2011) and now is starting to happen on my MacBook Air.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Computer Name Changes When Waking From Sleep

Apr 11, 2012

I'm running OS X Lion Server on a Mac Mini 2ghz Core 2 Duo and every time it wakes from sleep I get a message saying "There is already a computer on the network named MacServer, renaming to MacServer (2)". 

It only happens when waking from sleep.  If I reboot or use the mini for hours without sleeping it's fine, but once it's gone to sleep it renames on wake.  When it sleeps overnight it's named MacServer (5) by the morning, as it wakes up every two hours or so to re-register itself on the network and each time it renames itself. 

I don't have any other compters on the network with the same name.  The only other computer is a MBP and has a completly different name. Here's my setup; My Mac Mini is wired via ethernet to a Time Capsule.  AirPort is turned off (I've tried on and off).My Mac Mini has a static IP address (x.x.x.40) with DHCP for everything else (DNS, etc.)The Time Capsule is wired to an ADSL router via ethernet.  The ADSL router manages DHCP and NAT, with IP pool x.x.x.2 through x.x.x.30.  DHCP and NAT are turned off on the Time Capsule (bridged mode).  Wireless is turned off on the ADSL router.Time Capsule is handling wireless. 

I've tried resetting the ADSL router.  I've tried resetting the Time Capsule (to factory defaults). 

The problem seems to be with mDNSResponder, as the log seems to suggest that it is this daemon that thinks there's a duplicate computer name.  I've even looked at the source code for mDNSResponder and the last mod-log entry suggests that a fix was put in for this issue in 2009.  It doesn't look like it's fixed it, though. 

I've tried doing a fresh install of OS Server several times now and, after the last install, it started happening before I got a chance to restore from a Time Machine backup.  i.e. on a completly fresh install and assigning a completely new computer name.

OS X :: 10.6 Waking From Sleep

Nov 29, 2009

There are times when my iMac will wake from sleep for no apparent reason. Sometimes, several times a night. The glare from my screen often wakes me. If I get up and select Sleep again, it performs normally but may wake up again. I have "Wake for Network Access" turned off, so that shouldn't be it.

OS X :: Mac Keeps Waking From Sleep

May 15, 2010

It all started a few weeks ago. Whenever I put my Mac to sleep, most of the time, it immediately wakes up again. (Eventually, the fans would start to spin up, but I solved that by disabling "Sleep hard drives when possible"). Now it's just a matter of how I can put my Mac to sleep, and keep it sleeping until I choose to wake it up. I recently got a new printer hooked up to the network, and originally thought it was the issue, but I don't think so now.

I've tried disabling wake up on network access, Bluetooth wake-up. I tried a Airport connection instead of Ethernet, and have disabled both. I even tried unplugging the Ethernet cable, along with any connected peripherals (except the keyboard). Now, my only guess is that it's a software issue, but I don't know where to start. I would love to see my Mac sleeping peacefully again.

OS X :: Mac Pro Waking Spontaneously From Sleep

Sep 24, 2008

I am having a problem with my Mac Pro waking from sleep spontaneously at night. It doesn't always do so, but when it does it seems to be at the same time, 00:42. This morning I opened console to see what was going on at this time and this is what I got: [Log] So it would seem that eye tv is the culprit. I then went to open the com.apple.AutoWake.plist in the System Configuration folder and found 2 entries for EyeTV under wakepoweron which correspond to the times listed above (i.e. 09/24/08 00:42:30 and 03/31/32 06:00:00). I have tried dumping the com.apple.AutoWake.plist into the trash and then restarting, but a new file is generated with the same entries, and also opening the com.apple.AutoWake.plist to delete the entries, but then get an error saying I don't have appropriate access privileges to save the file (even when I change privileges under 'get info' to read/write I still get the same error message).

PowerPC :: G5 Not Waking Up From Sleep?

Apr 15, 2007

It wont wake from sleep and after I reboot it, it wont even start. After the chime, the screen stays blank and the fans start roaring high after a few minutes. I brought it to the Genius Bar. They ran diagnostics on it and concluded that the problem is the 3rd party RAM. I then removed the RAM when I got home and it worked for a day. Now, the problem is back. I already reset the the VRAM and the SMU. I'll bring it back today to the Apple Store but I dont know if they will even entertain me this time as they didn't even charge me for running the hardware diagnostics last time.

MacBook :: Waking Up / Not Going To Sleep?

Apr 13, 2009

I just occasionally have noticed my Blackbook, running 10.5.6, when I open it after closing it and moving elsewhere say, may have lost a lot of it's battery power. I think what's happening is it's not going to sleep properly (or it's waking up) when closed. This of course leaves me with not enough power (today 8% when I opened up). What concerns me much more is that the HD arm might not be in the parked position and damage could result with me travelling around. I have in fact had two complete HD failures in 2 1/2 years (though I have no reason to believe this is the cause, in fact I doubt it). I'm aware I can press the power button then select SLEEP and I often do when I'm just charging at home and want to keep the temp down (it's hot here!). Very interested to know what's going on though.....in fact interested in the bigger picture of HD arms when the things spinning as I use my Macbook outside and on my lap a lot, and can't help some movement of course. I emphasise when I shut the lid it normally sleeps as normal, this is just an occasional thing. So is it dangerous, what's causing it, and what about the bigger pic on HD arms when moving the laptop around?

MacBook Air :: Keeps Waking Up From Sleep?

May 3, 2009

My girlfriends Air has suddenly gotten a weird problem lately. Every now and then when she wakes it from sleep it seems to think that it has a second display connected to it. Even rebooting doesn't always solve the problem.

She has never used an external display with it before. The port looks clean (I thought there might be something there causing a short) and as far as we know there hasn't been any tinkering with any system files on her computer.

Anybody ever heard of this problem before? Or have any idea how to fix it?

PowerPC :: Not Waking Up From Sleep

Aug 6, 2009

I recently bought a second hand Powerbook G4 1.67. It came without a hard drive so i put a new drive in and installed Leopard on it. The problem, before I upgraded it to 10.5.7 sleep mode would work fine but since the upgrade after waking up from sleep only the mouse will work and the rest of the screen is frozen. Anyone else have this problem or know of a fix?

MacBook Air :: Wifi Not Waking Up From Sleep

Mar 28, 2008

I am not sure if this is related to the other wifi issues posted on this thread. I am hoping it is an easy Leopard configuration thing. But my wifi used to work perfect--until I patched my OS version. Now, whenever open the lid, it can never connect to my wifi router immediately like it used to do. It spends cycles hunting, and I end up having to manually go into network preferences and try a few times to connect, including rekeying the password.

OS X :: MacBook Crashes On Waking Up From Sleep

Apr 15, 2009

I have a late 2008 macbook, and occasionally after going into sleep via closing the lid or according to the sleep timer, it doesn't really want to wake up. I open the lid/press spacebar and the computer sounds like it's waking up, the keyboard lights up, but the screen stays dark. I've tried waiting for up to 30 seconds before eventually I just hold the power button and hard reset. Upon restart, there is an error message stating that os x crashed. I haven't been able to let it sit for more than a minute or two, as it usually happens when I'm getting ready to give a presentation or something, fun right.

MacBook :: Waking Up From Sleep On Its Own After 10.5.5 Installed

May 28, 2009

I have a 2.4 Penryn black MacBook. It's been waking up on it's own, overheating and shutting down since I installed 10.5.7. This happened when I first got it, and I took it to Apple. At that time, seems the RAM wasn't seated properly. It hasn't been a problem again until now. Yesterday, it did it twice. The RAM seems to be seated properly. Is there a firmware update or something I'm missing?

OS X :: Keyboard Not Working After Waking From Sleep?

Feb 26, 2010

I'm well sure this topic has come up before, but I've never seen it answered.

After waking my Mac mini from sleep, my keyboard won't respond at all. I tried:

- Plugging it into a different USB port, including the one on my monitor
- Using the mouse to wake the computer up from sleep instead of the keyboard
- Switching to a different, wired keyboard (had a wireless before)

Both keyboards used were off-brand (non-Apple) keyboards, but I've had a couple before these two that never had a problem whatsoever.

IMac :: Screen Not Waking From Sleep / What To Do?

Mar 27, 2010

Has anyone had this problem?

I have a (reletively) new iMac purchased in Nov. 27" 3.06 Ghz 4 GB Ram. The machine sleeps on it's own overnight from non use and then when i get up in the morning I click the mouse and I hear the machine waking up, (harddirve, cd-rom, etc.) but the screen stays blank. This happens in OSX and Win7 doen't matter what OS is running so it appears to be a hardware issue. Maybe there is a firm ware update, or somthing. To use the machine at that point, my only option is to force the machine to shutdown and then reboot. If I reboot to fast, meaning if I don't wait about 5-10 seconds after the shutdown, then the machine proceeds to boot but without any visuals, the screen stays blank.

Should I just take the system back to the apple store? Will they grab the current image and put it on a new machine...
