Firmware version explanation + sleep problem

My 10 days old iMac baby has problems to sleep. It goes to sleep but after 5-6 minutes it's awaken again. I tried everything I found relevant to this problem on this discussion board but no help at all. Mac baby was born with 10.4.8 and now it's at 10.4.10 - combo update, everything else is working perfectly well except this sleeping problem. I
After all, I went on Apple download in order to check if there are some EFI Firmware updates and now I'm more than confused with numbers.'
On Apple's site it's clearly written that the most recent firmware version for my iMac is "IM51.0090.B03 (20-inch late 2006)" http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/imacefifirmwareupdate11.html but my System Profiler shows higher number count: "IM51.0090.B08".
From System Profiler:
Hardware Overview:
Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac5,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Boot ROM Version: IM51.0090.B08
SMC Version: 1.9f4
Does anybody has any idea about this?
Tnx,

iMac 20'' (Late 2006)   Mac OS X (10.4.10)   2 Gb Crucial DDR2 RAM @ 667 MHZ, WD My Book Premium Edition 250 GB

Others have also found what appears to be a discrepancy in the firmware that System Profiler reports installed on their Mac versus the version reported in Apple Knowledge Base documents. The definitive document for me is Mac OS X: Firmware Updates for Intel-based Macs. This doc confirms the information that you report, so the logical explanation to me is that, although the doc was last updated by Apple on 1 MAY 2007, there has been an update to installed firmware in Macs shipping since the doc was last updated.
But the firmware shouldn't have anything to do with whether your Mac sleeps or not. Sleep is one of the things regulated by the System Management Controller. This can be reset.
But there are many other things that can interrupt the Mac auto-sleeping; external FW/USB peripheral devices, wifi, Bluetooth, etc. Have you added any such devices recently.

  • N85 firmware version 30.101 problem when watching ...

    After i update my n85 version from 30.019 to 30.101, i face a problem when trying to watch youtube without using the youtube application. When i use wifi and go to www.youtube.com, find video and klick on a video to start it, then Realplayer starts and says "loading" and then it failed to load the video. Before i update to 30.101, it will play the video by flash player like normal desktop screen without using real player. The problem now is it will stop on real player without play the video. The only way i can watch youtube right now is using youtube application. But i dont prefer using youtube application because the browser is diff frm the page u see frm the desktop screen.

    I'm also having issues when trying to view a video and real player comes up and says loading but it never does. Whether youtube, a live stream, or video on demand, this issue has been happening now consistently where the video will not play on a URL within the web browser. Please help Nokia! Where is your support? 

  • Problem with restore.I have a 2 gen running firmware version 4.2.1

    Hello there !
    Hopefully some smart persons here will be able to help me. First it has been awhile since i used my itune store because i didnt needed to and did a format of my computer after the last time i used it..so i had to upload my library etc and start from scratch. I downloaded a couple new games,everything was working fine..then when it came the time to sync and put these games on my ipod touch 2 gen the installation failed. I retried again and it keeps failing again and again so i choose to do a restore on it and expecting the problems would be solved. Problem wasnt not solved at all and it said an error (6) occured and i have the image on my ipod of the white cord trying to connect to itune store.
    Restore doesnt work at all and it seems like my ipod is totally useless as i cant use it anymore. I did the diagnostic..it said no ipod were found. I also did the check up thing for the technician so ill paste it here maybe it will give some clues..
    I have this error now as well... No iPod, iPhone, or iPad found. It also said secure link to itune store failed..not sure if these are all related to the same problems or all different at all..im clueless and need a generous soul to help me out.
    Thank you tons for the help !
    @Edit : Even with my other 2gen ipod i cant install these new games,it keeps failing as well..but at leasnt i havent done Restore on it yet and i fear to do it for reason you guys can guess.

  • Intermittent Sleep problems on all Windows versions I have tried

    Macbook Pro 5,1. Running Bootcamp 2.1. Machine will enter sleep mode successfully a few times (1-4 times) and then suddenly will not. Sleep light glows constantly and opening the lid shows a black screen.
    Brightness controls work (can see the screen lightening) and volume keys work (here 'pop' noise increasing and decreasing).
    I have tried Windows Vista 32/64 and Windows 7 32/64. I have installed updated drivers for NVidia card, Wireless Card, nForce drivers. I have tried disabling all the Apple services. I have made sure no devices are able to bring the machine out of sleep. I have ensured that the Windows Media Service cannot prevent the machine from going to sleep.
    Apple support is (muffled scream) useless. All I get is that this is a Windows problem and not supported. (Why do they say that you can run Windows on the Macbook Pro advertisement then?). I have read a posts from other users with the same problem but none of them have resolutions.
    Please help. It's the last step I need to make this thing usable. Can't return it, can't get it fixed. Can't get any help Apple and MS won't touch it. Otherwise, I'll swap this for a Dell of similar speed in a second. Any takers?

    Never saw a Macbook Pro;
    You Can Google search "Macbook PRO"Windows+sleepfix
    Copy paste that into the search & Check various yourself
    This one received positive response but seems on the Mac side.
    http://www.gcsdblogs.org/roodhouse/?p=746
    The fix for this problem can be found in the NETWORK panel of System Preferences. Click on the Ethernet Connection
    If this service was already marked INACTIVE simply switch it back to MAKE SERVICE ACTIVE and then hit apply.
    If it was already set to active then Click on MAKE SERVICE INACTIVE then hit apply.
    Now restart your computer. After the restart go back to this same screen and click on MAKE SERVICE ACTIVE, now make sure to hit apply.
    This will fix the sleep problems on a Macbook running 10.5.7. Interestingly it also fixes the sleep problems with a Macbook pro running 10.6 Snow leopard.
    http://www.itworld.com/hardware/69612/apple-issues-fix-macbook-pro-sata-interfac e
    Just found that disabling the "wake-on sleep" option of my mouse, network and modem seems to fix the problem.
    It may just be that my mouse or some other device tries to wake up the PC while it is going to sleep, and the computer gets all confused.
    I've been using hibernate as well from the time I first got my macbook. It's really nice to be able to hibernate, boot into OS X, then shutdown OS X and resume the Windows session without having to go through the whole boot process. It's too bad hibernating OS X forces you to wake up in OS X and you can't choose which OS to resume.
    Turning off AirPort usually will allow the MBP to sleep, but not always. In those cases, sometimes I have to try two or three times to put it to sleep -- and for whatever reason, it typically takes 30-60 seconds after disconnecting from the wireless connection before it will sleep. (And, yes, I have already disabled SafeSleep.)
    For Windows side,from me: a)check all power settings that refer to sleep/disable, this includes doing it at device/adapter level; if you open network conections from C. Panel, right click active adapter(LocalAreaConn.), select properties,then configure "connect Using" you'll see variable power setting.You can see this variable setting in Device Manager as well.

  • Were any reboot after sleep problems NOT fixed by the EFI firmware update?

    The subject says it all. I wanted to get a read on whether this EFI update really did solve the reboot after sleep problem for all 2008 Mac Pros. If have an early '08 Pro that had the problem before the update and it didn't go away after the update (and it's not due to some other problem like kernel panics, etc.), then please post details in this thread. thanks!

    We have 4 total systems (all had the issue, all slightly different configurations) and the reboot-on-wake issue has disappeared on all 4 of them.
    Looks like a definitive fix to me.

  • Mac Mini using dual-link to ACD 30" wake from sleep problem?

    I have a new mac mini and rather new 30"ACD using the display port via dual link adaptor. The screen looks find but sometimes when I put the mini to sleep and turn the display off, and then turn the display on and wake the mac mini, nothing appears on the display. I don't think it is every time, but it occurs. I have my keyboard attached to the display with the usb connection, and so I can choose from the display options to turn the mac mini off or put to sleep when turning off the display manually. I have used this sometimes but prefer not to.
    When the display doesn't show any image I have to hard shut down the mac mini, then start it up and leave the display on, then the image shows up.
    Is there a solution to this? I don't mind using any one surefire way to wake the whole system wake from sleep. Either turn off or turn on the option where turning off screen also brings up option to put mac mini to sleep or turn off. Don't use that option at all. Attach the keyboard only to the mac mini directly, etc.
    Any solutions would be appreciated.

    What is the firmware version of your Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter? I've read many reports on how this particular piece of Apple kit is just not working properly (http://www.9to5mac.com/DisplayPort-Dual-Link-DVI-Adapter, http://foliovision.com/2009/12/20/apple-dual-dvi-mini-displayport-adapter-mb571z).
    I've seen some people report that running firmware version 1.02 (or now 1.03?) solves their problems. I've also heard that people have had to resort to actually exchange their adapter in an Apple Store and hunt through new boxes to find adapters with the proper firmware version.

  • How to downgrade my firmware version after a "succesful" update?

    Dear Macusers,
    Is there any way to downgrade my firmware version from 1.5.1 to a lower version? Even if my firmware update has been applied succesfully? I cannot use just the firmware restore CD because that is for an interupted or failed update.
    Greetings,
    Tim

    Hello,
    Many thanks for your reply. Yesterday I posted a topic about this problem with some more details. I hope this may help.
    +"Since today my trackpad and keyboard doesn't response anymore. This problem started after I exit from sleep mode. Then I get a security form where I can enter my password, but I couldn't. So I restarted my macbook pro for about 5 times, removed my adapter and battery, but it doesn't work.+
    +After that I went to iFactory and they said it is apparently because of my latest firmware update 1.5.1. But why does this happen a week after I installed this update? Anyway, he suggested me to downgrade my firmware version with a firmware restore CD. Well it sounded as an straightforward and easy solution until I read that the restoration CD doesn't work when the firmware update already has been applied correctly.+
    +I have read some other topics about keyboard issues and some points are relevant for me:+
    +I'm be able to use an external USB mouse and keyboard.+
    +At system profile by USB, only my iSight, Bleutooth USB host controller and external USB devices are displayed.+
    +The keyboard background light works properly+
    +This problem happens all of a sudden without intervals or strange behavior.+
    +Using Leopard (10.5.2) and Windows XP via bootcamp+
    +I hope I can solve this problem really quick because I need my Macbook Pro badly for my study. Thanks in advance for studying my problem.+
    Greetings,
    Tim

  • Help with Optiarc AD-5630A causing sleep problems

    I have an original Macbook pro 17" 2.16 Ghz Intel Core Duo, 120Gb hdd, 2Gb ram.
    The original superdrive fried, so I had to replace it. I picked up an Apple MacBook Air external USB superdrive and removed the drive from the enclosure to replace my fried one. I believe my old drive was a mitsumi, the new one is a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-5630A with firmware 1CHQ
    Ever since I replaced it, here's what's happening, and I can duplicate the problem reliably.
    If I put the computer to sleep (closing the lid or otherwise) with a disc in the drive, it becomes un-responsive after the computer wakes. Console logs show a constantly looping error:
    8/24/09 5:53:23 PM kernel IOATAController device blocking bus.
    This error will loop endlessly several times per second until I restart the computer. In the meantime, nothing can access the drive and the OS struggles with the sleep/wake cycle. Usually, ejecting the disc will result in the OS succesfully unmounting the volume, but the eject signal is not reaching the drive, so the disc gets physically stuck in the drive until a restart. The drive functions normally at all other times.
    Thinking the new drive was faulty, and following Applecare's suggestion, I replaced it with an identical unit, (actually the manufacture dates are only a month apart, September and October of 2008) but the problem still persists. At this point, I'm thinking that it's either a hardware compatibility problem or an incompatibility with the firmware version.
    This is a fresh install of OS X Leopard 10.5.8 on a repartitioned and erased drive. All software is up to date. I have reset the PRAM.
    This drive is (was) used in the newish iMacs, and obviously, the MacBook Air USB drive. Some googling shows that there are different firmware versions for this drive.
    Anyone have any insight? Please? Help?
    Here's the log entry from sleep to wake to the error:
    8/24/09 7:53:17 PM kernel sleep

    Anyone have any ideas? Anyone? If there's someone out there with a macbook pro using an internal optiarc drive, open system profiler and post your macbook pro model, what model number the drive is and what firmware the drive is running. Anyone? Please? (can you tell I'm desperate?)
    aaron - was applecare of any assistance? It sounds like you've got a problem compounded by a vm. I can probaly help you out - I do mac IT work for a living. Does your IOATA error loop like mine does, or is it just a couple entries in the log?
    To help narrow down the problem, shut down Windows and quit Fusion. Open console so you can watch the log. (make sure you aren't currently getting the IOATA error - if you are, restart) Then put your mac to sleep and wake it back up. See if you then get the looping error in the log. Whether the error is happening or not, make this behavior repeatable so you cna predict what's going to happen ie: restart, check log, sleep, wake several times so you know what's supposed to happen.
    What we want to know is, does the error occur independently of Fusion, or only when fusion is running?

  • Possible reason for the iMac G5 with 10.4.3 Sleep Problems

    Ok first off let me say that I got this new iMac G5 20" about 4 days ago. It's wonderful. If anyone out there is holding out for the intel machines, don't wait, get a G5. It's a fantastic machine. Now on to the meat of the subject. The story goes like this; I hooked up my Plextor PVR with eyeTV to my iMac to see how well it would do (been using it with a P4 Windoze XP machine and my iBook G4 14" with no problems). It worked just great. No problems with the iMac, the PVR or any of my other addons (including the boatload of software I migrated over from the iBook). So I set up EyeTV to record some stuff while I was asleep. It's supposed to wake up the Mac, record the shows then the Mac goes back to sleep. Easy huh? Well the wakeup, record part went just fine but the Mac wouldn't go back to sleep. Perplexed (actually thrilled, this is where I have my most fun with new machines, figuring out why they aren't working correctly) I did all the standard "I can't get my Mac to sleep automatically" things. You know, blow away all the plist files that have anything to do with powermanagement and autowake, reset NVRAM from OF, reset the PRAM (3 times just like the old days), reset the SMU, blow away all the Bluetooth plist files, etc, etc. Did them all, don't suggest any, I did them all I swear, really. I've been through this kind of thing before. One big difference with this iMac. Nothing and I mean nothing would work to fix the problem. The only way the bad boy would sleep is by hitting the Power button for a second or selecting "Sleep" from the Apple menu. Hmmmm. Spent the better part of a morning reading every thread here about peoples problems like mine. One post and I mean exactly one had something I hadn't tried. I rebooted the Mac in Safe Mode (hold the shift key down while it boots until you get the login screen with the red text "Safe Mode".) I forgot that OSX even did that. Logged in as myself (normal login but still in safe mode) and low and behold the thing would sleep automatically! I repeated this (boot in normal mode, boot in safe mode) many times. Every single time the Mac would sleep from safe mode but not from normal mode. Tells me it's software not hardware. In each mode I run "Activity Monitor" and save a list of the running processes to a text file. Now compare them and shutdown each process that is different one at a time. To make this story somewhat shorter (heh) I finally found that I could consistantly make the machine sleep or not sleep by killing the "mdimport" process and restarting it. This has to do with Spotlight. To be exact, it's the process that imports Metadata into Spotlights data list (I'm no expert, have a basic understanding of this). So on a hunch I ran the terminal and entered the command to delete then rebuild Spotlights databases, "mdutil -E /". Then I let Spotlight rebuild that databases and rebooted. Guess what? The iMac sleeps perfectly now, go figure. I did this once so far and the Mac has been working correctly now for about 5 hours. I've got a feeling that the problem will come back. Especially if it's an inherent problem in Spotlight and the 10.4.3 upgrade. I don't seem to have this problem with 10.4 or earlier. Long post I know but I thought it could help someone out. Please post any comments. I'd like to know if what I did is coincidence (I really don't think so since I reproduced it many times) or not.

    iBook G4 1Gig, iMac G5 2.1 Gig, iMac 266   Mac OS X (10.4.3)   iMac 266 running 10.3.6, been using Macs since the '80s

    Right guy's i to have researched this problem
    concerning my auto sleep problem.I started off by
    following Joeaux's original post by safe
    booting,noting what was running in the activity
    monitor,booting normaly and again noting what was
    running now.I eliminated the same processes that were
    running from both boots, and then started quiting one
    by one, the extra processes, from the normal boot, in
    activity monitor.Once you quit a process, allow the
    computer to try to go to sleep i.e set energy saver
    to 1minute and wait to see what happens.I tried the "
    mdimport"as of Joeaux but this was not my problem.In
    my case the sleep problem was down to two
    applications called N67U_ButtonManager and
    N124U_ButtonManager.These are for use with my Canon
    scanner.I also noted that if i left the scanner
    connected to the computer this would also stop it
    going to sleep,even after deleting the two
    applications.Hope this helps!
    Thank you now i know that those login items are for my scanner, and not logic audio i am a little less angry(Logic is now an apple application but the version I run was from the emagic days and i presumed that the button managers were from this app as it was the oldest bit of software running on my machine) By the way any apps that may cause a problem like this are more than likely simply residing in your user login items and can be disabled from there permanently as far as i can see.

  • How do you upload firmware to Airport extreme with the following message: This version of AirPort Utility requires this AirPort Extreme use firmware version 7.3.1 or later. Use AirPort Utility 5.6 to update this base station. I'm using airport utility 6.0

    The airport extreme at my parent's house has not had its firmware update in some time and it keeps dropping the internet connection and needing to be reset.
    I went to update firmware and opened up airport utilities (I'm running airport 6.0 on Mountain Lion, 10.7.4).  Everytime I open the airport utility I get the following message: "
    This version of AirPort Utility requires this AirPort Extreme use firmware version 7.3.1 or later. Use AirPort Utility 5.6 to update this base station. AirPort Utility 5.6 is available at AirPort Service and Support.
    I've followed the link and tried to update firmwares but none are available and the print says that airport utility will look to see if firmware are available and load them as necessary when prompted by user.
    One link said the only way to solve this problem is open up Airport Utility 5.6. I tried to do this, but 5.6 is not supported on Mountain Lion and couldn't be opened up.
    I'm getting the exact same message on my other computer, a Mac Air.
    So basically, can't download new firmware and am stuck with a ****** airport extreme that needs to keep being reset, a factory reset, in order to use the internet, but then continues to give me the same message.
    Thanks!

    See this article for instructions on how to install AirPort Utility 5.6 for Lion on Mountain Lion:

  • Power Mac G4 sleep problem

    Hello!
    My G4 (mdd) won't go to sleep anymore. Neither on its own via energy saver nor when you press the power button or select sleep in the apple menu. Does anyone know what to do?
    I already unplugged my USB devices, didn't help. Then I trashed my energy saver and bluetooth preferences and reset PRAM by pressing <commandoption+PR> at startup, no luck. I read all the previous posts about this issue and did everything they said, but it didn't help.
    maybe someone has an additional suggestion.
    Thank you!

    A number of sleep-related issues can appear after incremental Mac OSX updates, including the inability to properly go to sleep, problems waking from sleep, and having your display go to sleep without your Mac going to sleep. The most common culprit is Bluetooth. Try these tips to fix your sleep problems.
    WAKE UP
    In System Preferences>Bluetooth, uncheck Allow Bluetooth Devices To Wake This Computer. If you are using a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, you'll have to wake your Mac by pressing the power button.
    FILE CORRUPTION
    Your Bluetooth preference file may be corrupt-you'll need to delete it. Turn Bluetooth off, then go to the /Users/user name/Library/Preferences folder. Look for a file called com.apple.Bluetooth.plist and trash it.The OS will create a new preference file when you enable Bluetooth again.
    ENERGY SAVER
    If you have issues with a Mac or display that goes to sleep at inappropriate times, you may have a problem with Energy Saver. Delete the following .plist files and restart:
    -/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.PowerManagement.plist
    -/Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.apple.systemuiserver.plist--(username is your name or System Administrators name).
    -/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.AutoWake.plist
    A restart is very important after deleting these plists. After a reboot your Mac will then generate new ones.
    In some cases, running MacOS X's cron tasks-maintenance that the OS performs automatically if you leave your Mac on 24 hours a day-can resolve many sleep problems. If you don't want to leave your Mac on, you can use MacJanitor, Yasu, or OnyX free at Versiontracker.com.
    Some, in these forums, have had luck fixing sleep issues downloading the combo update from this site (yours may be corrupt), not Software Update, disconnect all firewire + USB devices except keyboard + mouse, Repair Permissions, re-install update, Repair Permissions again + try.
    Yours would be the 10.3.9 combo update. Others here would use the one for their version.
    Cheers!

  • WRT100 | Firmware Version: 1.0.02 | UPGRADE FIRMWARE

    I have checked the upgade firmware for my router (WRT100) and found a newer version available. I downloaded the file (which has an extension of ".bin") and attempted the upgrade. First, as far as I know, there is nothing to extract, and secondly, the upgrade process does not recognize the file to upgrade.
    I am upgrading as I am experiencing between 25% and 50% dropped packets in all ping tests. This happens in 40%-60% of all ping tests. I have verified that all else is working correctly in my home. I have six computers connected to the device: 4-wired, and 2-wireless. The wireless units experience more dropped packets than the wired units, but all experience dropped packets.
    Question: will the firmware upgrade solve the problem?? Or, is this router just screwed and worn out? I would hate to think that it is worn out as I just purchased it, replacing my old WRT-54.
    Any and all suggestions would be most welcomed!!
    Thanks, Jim Cotton/Atlanta

    Still trying to make it work.
    I have successfully downloaded this file: FW_WRT110_WRT100_1.0.05.003_EN_20080708,0.bin
    I have it on my main c: dirve. I navigate to it via the upgrade option in the admin tab of my router. No problem so far.
    But, when I click on the "Start to Upgrade" button (with this file display in the navi window), I'm greeted with a notice that says to please designite a firmware file to use. So, as fare as I can tell, the upgrade option is not seeing the file for some reason, or won't use it.
    I've compared this file name with the last upgrade that successfully accomplished, and find the file names quite different.
    Last Successful Firmware Upgrade file name: WRT100_1.0.02.034_fw.bin
    Recent unSuccessful Download file name: FW_WRT110_WRT100_1.0.05.003_EN_20080708,0.bin
    Notice the difference? Wonder if I should change the name to look like the older one; maybe that would work.
    Anyway, let me know what you think. I'm getting a little frustrated. Also wondering if anyone thinks this will cure the dropped packets issue?

    Basically it means that BB5 phones like N-Series including N80 and E-series cannot be downgraded to a previous version once they have been upgraded. Trying that with third party tools, because it's not possible through NSU, will brick (dead) your phone, period.
    That's why I said you'd have to take the phone to a service center.
