    I have a problem. I have a solution. I have a Mac G3 with a added PCI
    Card to allow USB devices to be used. I have been running System 9.0.4
    for ever, and had no problems. I have several USB devices plugged in
    to the to PCI card, including a printer, optical mouse, external USB
    CD Burner (SONY), flashcard reader, etc. When I upgraded to System 9.1
    from 9.0.4 I noticed a problem. More often than not, I could not get
    my Mac to wake from sleep. I had to reboot to get it to come back to
    life.

    I accidently discovered a work around. Seems if I turn off my Sony CD
    Burner with the power button on the front of it, my mac will ALWAYS
    wake up. I don't now why this is, but since I don't use the burner
    much at all, it is no problem keeping it turned off, and this solves
    the sleeping problem.

    Thought you might like to know this.
