Re: Fwd: iBook fails to awaken from sleep

Hi Mark,

Are you able to cold boot into firewire hard drive mode with CMD-T? Not sure with those older iBooks.

After, you could proceed to extract/modify files on the iBook to restore functionality. You would need a firewire to Thunderbolt or firewire to usb, some such adapter. They're not too pricey considering the peace of mind.

The firewire to Thunderbolt you might be able to get from the Apple Store. I was able to some years ago.

The original iBook only has USB and I don't think it boots from it.

However, I think you refer to this as a procedure to restore the machine.

The iBook is not dead, at restart after a forced shutdown fsck runs fixes and boots.

The issue is that sleep doesn't work anymore, more precisely, awaken hangs! And it used to work very well. I suppse something in the kernel broke, or some drivers or userland.
