iMac Question. Can Anyone Help?

    I have this iMac:


    Every so often, maybe twice a month, it goes to sleep on its own. And when I click the mouse, hit the space bar, move the mouse, it stays asleep.

    I have to hold the power button in to shut it down. Then turn it back on.

    Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

    It's tired and wants another hour of sleep before school.

    My iMac used to do that, too. I always called it a coma. Never could fix it. Just cussed and rebooted.

    Same here.

    It happens when it hasn't been turned off for awhile.

    You have a new baby. Shouldn't you be happy when something sleeps more than it should?

    The problem?

    You bought a Mac.

    Uh, no.

    I have decades of experience with both, and I'll take the mac 100 times out of 100.

    Then we differ on 100 times out of those 100.

    Damn, that puts your fail rate at 100 percent. That's gotta be rough. It's ahead of the PC fail rate, but not by much. :)

    Agree to disagree I guess AB. I love my PC, and I haven't had any problems with it.

    I don't think I've ever heard anyone say they love a PC.

    I've heard of people loving and hating Macs. I've heard of people hating PCs.

    Usually people tolerate them.
