    ibook clamshell only wants to sleep, HELP?

    Are you able to launch System Profiler, jeepattack89? This might just be a long shot but, at the very bottom look to see if it says "Clamshell Closed: Yes" It is possible* that your Clammie might think it is closed when you have it open. I realise that the Cheetah install had no probs with...
