    Mini Waking Up, Going Right Back to Sleep

    I am using an intel Mac Mini with the Carnetix 1900 power supply.

    Much like me when I have to wake up early for work, it wakes up but goes right back to sleep. This happens when I turn my car on - wakes up as normal, but never outputs any sound, and within a few seconds it's back to sleep. I have to touch the screen (mouse) to get it to wake back up and start playing music.

    I contacted Carnetix, thinking the power supply might be malfunctioning, and they said it was more likely something to do with the mini itself.

    Any ideas?

    Does it stay on after you awake it by touching the screen?

    unplug all USB accessories and see if that fixes the problem. This can happen when things like hubs and other USB devices draw too much power.

    It does stay on after I wake it up.

    I have unpugged my wireless keyboard receiver and will also try unplugging the hub I have. Thanks for your replies.

    I'll post here again if it doesn't work.
