My iMac seems to have lost its ability to go to sleep and wake

Customer Question

My iMac seems to have lost its ability to go to sleep and wake up again. When it is put to sleep, either from the menu or automatically, a touch of a key to wake it up generates a restart, with message to the effect that there was a problem, unspecified. What is going on, do you think?

Matthew Gill :

Can you please state the model number of the iMac? It is under the 'About this Mac' option, when you click on the Apple at the top left.

Hello, I'm unsure of why the response above was sent. It was automated. In still very much available for questions. If you could get the model number I may begin searching for solutions. Thank you.

I note that I have been billed even though I terminated the transaction without receiving any help from you. I shall report your fraudulent behaviour.

I assure you I have not collected any funds from you. I will not receive any money without a positive rating. I would very much like to help you, however, I respect your decision if you still wish to terminate the question.

Dear Matthew,


you betrayed your ignorance by seeking the model number of my iMac. This is irrelevant to the problem, which I have found to be kernel panic, a problem to which all iMacs are prone. I gave you sufficient information for you to identify the problem, although not the root cause.


To bill my account before I have indicated that I am satisfied with the "Answer" is tantamount to fraud. I expect a full refund.


Please stop bothering me.
