G4 1250 MHz sleep and boot problems
Hey ifixit community,
after searching for my issues with my powerbook g4 for ages now I thought I might gonna ask you now ;)
I have several weird problems with the powerbook,
so first, I installed Leopard on it and the disc for the installation needed about half an hour to boot, but the installation itself went without any further problems.
But the boot time of the Powerbook is now about 6 min. long. When it is done booting the system works fine and smooth. The next problem is, that when I try to put the powerbook into sleep mode and close the lid, it won´t get into sleep mode, but seems to be dead.
When I then open it, the screen is black and it does not wake up, whatever I do. I then have to restart the powerbook and have to wait again 6 min....
The really weird thing about this problem is, when I did a fresh install of Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.0 boot time was fine and sleep mode worked like a charme. However, when I updated from 10.4.0 to any higher system like 10.4.1 and higher, the problems with the sleep mode came back, but at least boot time was more or less okay.
So all in all:
-Tiger 10.4.0 boot: fine ; sleep mode: fine
-Tiger 10.4.1 and higher boot: fine ; sleep mode: failed
-Leopard 10.5 boot: about 6 min. ; sleep mode: failed
I have installed 2 GB of DDR memory and my machine has an 1,25 GHz G4 and a 160 GB Samsung HD.
I really have no clue what to do...
So I would really appreciate your help!

Is this a good question?
