    screen protector + sleeping
    hi folks,

    i've had my 15'' powerbook for some months now, and i recently bought a screen protector cloth to avoid the keys from damaging the screen when
    the powerbook is closed.

    but...if i put the protector in and close the screen while the machine is on (so it goes into sleep mode), it won't wake up when i open it later. it hasn't turned itself off, but i have to reboot using Ctrl+Command+Power...

    i like to just keep my machine sleeping when i'm not using it, does that
    mean i have no use for the screen protector?

    peace,

    jp

    Just looks like a coincidence to me. Your screen protector cloth shouldn't have any affect on your PB. Sometimes it might take a while for your computer to wake up from its slumber... I know for a fact mine does.

    i know what you mean - and that's not it. it never happens without the
    screen protector, and it always happen when i use it.

    i just read some of the "PowerBook G4 15-inch Getting Started.pdf" file

    http://manuals.info.apple.com/Apple_...G415inchUG.pdf

    on page 68 it says:

    Never place anything over your keyboard before closing
    the display. This can cause your computer to cycle on and off which may create excessive heat and drain on your battery.
    i don't understand how they can sell the screen protectors if it will damage the machine.

    I don't think they are meant for use during sleep.

    I use a marware keyboard cover and i have never had a problem with it

    Not an issue. I always keep the iSkin protector on my keyboard - while using it, whilst on sleep and also when its shut off. Additionally, I also use the ScreenSaverZ cloth when i put it on sleep or shut it down. It works perfectly for me. Maybe u should get ur PB checked out or something.

    i got a slightly thinner cover and now it works fine.
