I've got it set to go to sleep after 15 minute and it used to do that but recently it's not going to sleep at all ...no mater how long...Any ideas ??Gracias Comments Reply 1 of 4 dr millmoss Posts: 5,403member July 28, 2009 10:14AM What's a "bubble base" iMac? Are you referring to the G4 iMac?Have you installed any software recently?

The worst offender being the CDiBook. Never found a reason why?? Reply 4 of 4 tauron Posts: 911member August 4, 2009 9:20AM Uninstall MS Office and reboot. That should take care of the problem.
