Problems Waking From Sleep

Hi there

I recently bought an iMac G5 with OSX Tiger (about one week ago). I have just had a slightly worrying problem. While breaking from work, the computer went to sleep as normal but wouldn't respond to keyboard or mouse clicks to wake up. It then started to make a very loud whirring noise as if the hard disk was spinning or as if it was trying to read a cd. This didn't stop. I managed to restart it by holding down the power button and all seemed as normal, it had recovered the file I was working on as if it had crashed.

I have not tried putting it to sleep again yet.

I have basic knowledge of macs but am new to OSX.

Thanks very much
Eleanor
