 Post subject: PLEASE HELP!
PostPosted: Sat Jun 19, 2004 6:18 pm 
15" PowerBook G4 1Ghz Aluminum
OS 10.3.4

When the computer is shut down, or in sleep mode whenever the battery goes down low, or I somehow open and close the laptop (waking and then sleeping, I guess), I CANNOT START THE THING.
All I hear is that awful squeek.
Then, after 20 minutes of resetting the PMU, start-squeek, battery out, plug out, cables out, reset PMU, it finally starts up.

Is this a battery problem, internal battery problem, or motherboard problem?
Obviously it's something with power manager, but I try to reset that many times to no avail. Permissions have been repaired often.

PLEASE HELP! :(

There is a known issue with the Aluminum model that after the battery drains completely it can take a few minutes...sometimes up to 10-15 minutes to wake from sleep. You just have to leave it plugged in and eventually when you press a key the unit will wake from sleep.
