Thread: new here...sleep ?
10-09-2006, 08:59 PM #1new here...sleep ?
hi- I'm new to this forum. I'm mostly on bmw forums.
I have had my mac since feb. 01. I have a dual 450 g4. For some reason I got the dvd-ram drive- not sure why- I never use it.
My mac still works awesome, especially after going from 9 to Tiger.
Recently I had this problem:
whenever I do not touch my machine for (often) less than a minute...
the hardrive spins down. Often it will happen when just reading or looking away for a minute. Then when I go back, there is a pause until the HD spins up again. Also the fan likes to run and run and run.....
It's starting to bug me and I was wondering if anyone has a tip.
I have reset the sleep to default.

do what you gotta do huh?
If I knew- I wouldn't ask....still spins down when untouched for 30 seconds or less sometimes. Energy saver is straight forward and is not affecting / changing the issue at all.dual 450's G4- 17" studio
