I've just noticed that the energy saving features don't seem to work on my iMac G3 DV 400MHz.

I was planning on leaving it on overnight to re-sync my 3G iPod (which does not seem to work via firewire, only USB1 and I have created a thread about it with no suggestions so far). I find the screen glow annoying because my desk is next to my bed, so I wanted the monitor to automatically switch off. But, even after setting it to 1 min of inactivity, it did not work.

I have also tried scheduling startup and shutdown, and sleeping after so many minutes of inactivity, but these do not work either.

Do I need some kind of driver for this? I am running 10.3.9.

Looks like I'll have to put a piece of cardboard in front of the screen temorarily. 18GB over USB1 is gonna take all night

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Check the preferences to see if the mac is set to receive faxes. If so it will stay awake waiting for an incoming signal. Another possibility: make sure the energy saving settings in classic are set to allow the mac to sleep.

Faxing is disabled.

Also, I do not have classic (OS9) installed.

Is there a Firmware update maybe that can be applied?

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=75130 is the latest version for the iMac.

It sounds rather odd that power management is seemingly not working at present...

I just tried the screen sleep after 1 min of inactivity and it turned off

It ran the Software Update the other day, so I think this might of fixed it. I'll try the automatic shut down and restart in a while.

It's currently on 4.1.9, I had to upgrade before installing OSX.

EDIT: Yep, scheduled start up and shut down also work nicely. Great :black:
