iBook Not Going to Sleep

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
My iBook is acting up.

For the past several months, it hasn't always gone to sleep correctly. Before I go to bed, I shut it and turn off the light. The screen turns off when it is closed, but the HD is still spinning and the sleep light doesn't go on. When I open it up again, the screen turns on, but the computer is frozen, so I have to restart it.

I just reinstalled OS X.2 a few weeks ago, so I have no idea what is causing this. Should I send it to Apple? I have a three year warranty. Or is it something I can fix? Thanks.

    If you've got a three year warranty on the box, my first step in solving the issue would be dialing the AppleCare phone number, not posting a question to 'AppleInsider'

    Seriously though, do a google search, or hit up macfixit.com. I've heard of the problem before, but cannot say any more than that...
