No matter if I shut my intel duo core MackBook (running 10.4.10) or soft sleep it from the pulldown menu, I get the usually diskdrive noise, but then it continues to repeat itself about every 15 to 20 seconds. So while I think my laptop is sleeping, it's really overheating and draining the battery. I've scoured the sleep settings, do not have any peripherals attached, and do not have a disc in the drive when sleeping-but the sleep command never works. The Apple Website is of no use in helping diagnose. I've unfortunately resorted to Shut Down each time I'm away. Anyone out there with the same problem?
