External drives (hard drive, DVD burner, iPod, USB drive), printer, a worn out mouse button, debris in/on the keyboard, and cats are all things that can cause your computer to refuse to sleep (or wake it shortly thereafter). Rule out these first. I have had the same problem in the past. It is almost always one of these that causes the problem.

Well you will have to look for software made for the PowerPC architecture and not for x86 systems. Look for universal binary in the software as this shows that it will work on PowerPC architecture.As for the operating system OS 10.5 Leopard was the final version for PowerPC based systems. Good luck
Your hard drive is spinning down and is slow to respond. Some of the old Fujitsu drives were known to do this. I would check your power saving settings in display properties and adjust it so the drive is not powering down.
I would by pass disk repair and unfortunately go straight to reinstalling Leopard. When you get icon and it asks what you wish to do you want to reinstall and safe old files. Once you reinstall leopard you will find all your old files in previous system located in hd icon.
The problem could be the operating system you are running on the Macs. I currently have a Powerbook G4 that I was running Leopard on, the only problem is my computer didn't support leopard so I kept having to get the computer serviced. I eventually switched to the Tiger operating system and that solved it. Try changing the operating system, but make sure you have back everything up first. If you need to know how to do this, even if the computer won't turn on, I can provide detailed instructions, since I had to do this a month ago. Good luck.
It depends on how long computer is being used in a day. for general use you can shutdown your computer once in 2 days but i highly recommend not to put in sleep mode and betting putting in hibernate mode instead of sleep mode. note: most of simple issues are resolved by restarting PC so you can guess now how important is to shut down computer.
