Hi. I just got a iMac OS X recently.
When I use Option-Command-Eject to put the computer to sleep, it sometimes comes back on. If anyone could please explain what's happening, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

What happens if you use the "Sleep" command from the drop down menu's?

Doesn't do it. If I use the drop-down menu, so far, it won't come back on. Only when I use the hotkey.

I guess that the only other thing I can mention is...when you've used the keyboard hot keys before (and your iMac comes back on)...are you sure that you didn't:

- bump the keyboard
- bump the mouse
- or bump the table that the iMac is on while it's asleep

Any of these things could cause the computer to wake up.

Also (just curious)...how come you use a three-key command to sleep the computer. Isn't it easier to select "Sleep" from the drop-down menu? As I said...just curious. Seems easier (to me) to use the mouse...but I know "different strokes for different folks".

Hope this helps,
