Hi sorry about the lack of info.
The Lid is open when i pick up the machine.
I was able to pick up the machine 1 inch off the desk, i then hit the bottom of it where the battery is and it when to sleep, the white light come on at the front of the iBook. so i tried taking out the battery and it done the same thing, i then tilted the iBook forward and then back, left and right, i done it softly first and nothing happen so then i done it a bit quick and it went to sleep. does the iBook have some sort of sensor in it?
When it goes to sleep you don't hear any noises, no HD spinning and No Fan just the white sleep light.
The setting for the energy savour is default as i have just installed a clean OS on it 10.3.9. But at start up the HD is a bit loud, do you think the Hard drive could make the machine go to sleep if it is faulty. ( what i mean by noisy is that you hear it spin louder then normal and makes a whistling sound.
