I got the PCI USB card working with SLEEP but discovered an issue with the iPod.
I just installed a PCI USB 2.0 IOGear 5 port card in this G4 QuickSilver:
G4 933 2002 model
PCI SCSI card 2930CU
This G4 runs perfectly, and while I lost automatic DEEP SLEEP more than
a year ago (Jag or Panther not sure) it would manually go to SLEEP even
with the SCSI card. REmoving the SCSI card makes no difference in this problem with the USB 2.0 card.
On installing the IOGear card all seemed okay until I hooked up a 4thGen
iPod and even tho the iPod was dismounted (but still connected via the
IOGear USB 2.0 card) when I put the G4 to SLEEP manually the display
blanked but G4 remained on & running and did not SLEEP and worse, it
would not WAKE up & had to POWER Button 5 sec to get it OFF.
Subsequent experimenting it seems if iPod is connected mounted or
ejected but still connected via the PCI USB 2.0 IOGear card it will not
SLEEP & won't WAKE. Only way out is to POWER Button 5 sec route. Once
rebooted & removed iPod it WILL SLEEP & WAKE okay.
Obviously, I won't ever SLEEP this G4 with an iPod connected again.
Is this normal for IOGear or other PCI USB 2.0 cards?
Main reason I put in the USB 2.0 card is I bought a 5th Gen iPod Video
for my daughter for Christmas (not opened yet or even checked it out
yet) and that iPod Video will sync ONLY via USB not Firewire as my older
4th Gen iPod would do.
Main music MP3 library is on this G4 mac so it seemed best to install a
USB 2.0 card in it.
I know some added hardware peripherals will not allow DEEP SLEEP. At
least this PCI card will work if no iPod is actually connected.
Thanks for comments in advance.
