    Powerbook 15" problems with sleep mode

    Hi All,

    I'm having some horrid problems with my PB 15" 1.5Ghz.. It keeps going to sleep even when open and I am working on it..

    I read some tutorials saying I should remove the light sensors as they are faulty. I did this but it hasn't helped at all...

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    Have you checked all the parental controls settings? someone might have meddled or you accidently set something doing it?

    Things to check would be the Time Limits section.

    If not, check the power saving settings, to see if it's set to sleep at somepoint?
    Or remove the power saving settings altogether and see if that helps define the problem abit more.

    These are only the simple options that I thought of in my spare 5 minutes.

    I tried resetting the PRAM, did nothing..

    I'm the admin, so there are no parental controls.

    Even went so far as to remove the light sensors (this was recommended on another forum). Made no difference.

    Machine has stabilized itself (oddly).. Just plain weird..

    Will keep you posted..

    Thanks for your help!

    Cheers,
