My G5 iMac (rev b 10.4.6) is putting itself to sleep! Yesterday it ran fine all day, then towards evening it started falling asleep. Mostly when I was not using it, but sometimes when I am on it. Doesn't matter what is running. I turned off all energy savings, restarted, ran Cocktail, applejack, reset the SMU. No avail! Help!!!

I just went through that with my iMac. Mine kept getting worse until it would not wake up or would only wake up after uuplugging everything and waiting for a period of time.

Apple replaced the logic board and now all's well.

Here's what Apple made me go through to try and fix the problem.

Ouch! Has anyone else had this experience? It soulds like I'll have to wait for it to get more consistantly bad for them to diagnose it.

You got that right.

When I took mine in, they called and said they could not duplicate the problem. I told them to keep it until the problem was duplicated and then fix it. Later that day it went to sleep and then the logic board was ordered. Total of three days in the shop. Glad the shop is only 5 blocks from my house.

logic board.

open your Console app and watch what it reports just before sleep. usually it's "thermal runaway" or something like that.
