The module standard sleep mode is in effect this usually requires you to log out and then log back in as a screen saftey percausion so it dont burn what ever is on your screen

on desktop right click
properties
goto screen saver
then down at bottom monitor power click the tab
adjust how you want your settings but be warned that adjusting settings might hurt your screen as you leave screen on for lenghth of period the image burns into screen

if you remember monogramn this was a fault of continuous screen deplicition

I just got an ibook laptop and it just shut down on me. It has a light somewhat blinking but i dont know whats going on. Ity doesnt turn on. do you know what theproblem might be?


It could be that it has gone to sleep. If you press any key on the keyboard it should wake up. To set the amount of time tbefore it goes to sleep go to the apple menu top left hand corner of the screen then down to system preferences and then the control panel energy saver and select the length of time before the display is put to sleep. Unchecking the box that says "put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible" will also help but the macbook's battery will run down faster. Hope this helps

I dropped my macbook pro a few weeks ago. Everything was working normally, even the cd drive, which is on the side where I dropped and heavily dented it. The worst of it seemed to be that the casing is so...


I'm going to tell you what the Apple tech will tell you, because it's true:
In many cases, the damage and the system failure do not occur at the same time. Sometimes, a customer will drop a system or spill something on it and find that the system continues to work for a while. Sometimes components can crack upon impact but the electrical and data connections may not open or short until well after the crack occurs. This can be due to flex on the system chassis or expansion or contraction with temperature change. Another example occurs when a hard drive is damaged by an impact but may continue to work at a lower standard of performance. In some cases, quite some time may pass before the unit finally fails.

Further bad news is that accidental damage is not covered by product warranty, including Applecare extended warranty, so the cost of the repair you need may be significant.

I'm sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news here, but my recommendation is that you repair or replace this computer ASAP.

Waking from sleep mod


Hello
The hinge is a very fragile part of the Macbook. In the hinge goes all the video and sound cables, as well as the backlight power. You can have a hardware problem here with your connectors.
However the sleep mode can also take its time to wake up:
- The hard dive needs to wake its 5400 rpms - The system has to wake - The video has to wake
I would think that a fast internal hard drive, as a SSD drive for example, will wake up much faster.
Hope this helps

try You can force a frozen MacBook Air — or any current Mac laptop — to shut down and restart without removing its battery. You just hold down the power button for a few seconds until the machine shuts off, then wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.
