Could someone please assist.
I have a iBook G4 laptop. I have tried to connect an external monitor and a mouse but unfortunately it hasn't worked for me. I have followed the instructions from the apple website (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86286)
When I reached step 6 and closed my laptop lid and awoke the computer, the desktop screen flicked up on the external monitor for about 1/2 a second and then it shut down again and I could hear the laptop go back into sleep mode.

Please help.
