I neither know nor care why my computer won't go to sleep, I just thought I'd try it. Perhaps it's one of my video cards, or my scsi card, or my other ethernet card ... my computer sleeps in 9, just not in X.
That's OK though, it acts as a router for a handful of other computers, so I never want it to sleep, I only want it to shut off the monitor.
I think factory installed AGP uses different driver or runs in OS X "native" mode. If you go to ATI driver's page, it askes if you have factory video card, or retail video card. That usually because Apple uses different driver on their factory video card.
Originally posted by theed My 'puter came with the redeon preinstalled in the AGP slot.
I have a Voodoo 3 PCI card in addition to the ATI Rage card that came with the machine. It works without any problems, except from being a little slow when moving windows around etc. (because of the lack of 3dfx drivers, and I guess there will be none in the future also)
I got Mac OS X to install on my PowerMac 7600 using some modified kernel extensions. My third party USB PCI card, Asante 10/100 PCI card and PowerForce G3 upgrade work fine (with some drivers downloaded from the manufacturers web sites).
Unfortunately, Mac OS X will fail to boot on this machine if my ATI Rage Orion PCI card is installed, and ATI has no drivers for it available for download. Anyone know anyone who has been able to get one of these beasts to work with Mac OS X?
