I don't know what has happened but if the Mini goes to sleep it won't wake up.

What should I do, at the moment all I can do is to switch off at the back of the machine and restart. I am sure that is not aq good thing to do.

Really I want to know what has caused the problem and do something to fix it. I used to be able to wake it up with touch of the mouse. Now even hitting some keys on the keyboard or putting in a disk won't wake it up.

Any ideas guys ??

I had the same problem, I found that if I plugged the keyboard directly into the Mini (not a hub), then when I want to wake it up I just hit the space bar or any other key. Apperently some hubs take a while to come back on after sleep. Anyway that solved my problem.

I've heard of some problems with some USB devices/hubs causing this sort of behavior. You may also want to try running DiskUtility repair permissions and if that doesn't work reset the PRAM.

I had this problem sometimes when I was connected to my Mac Mini through a USB KVM. Since then I relocated it, and it has its own Apple keyboard, display, and mouse, and now it always behaves as expected when I put it to sleep.

Well I did a swap around with the USB thingies I have attached and put the mouse direct and tried it and it works like it did.

I had thought it was to do with the software I was trying out that was supposed to mute the startup sound which didn't work and was put on about the same time as the problem started to happen.

I shall leave it switched on tonight and see if the machine wakes up in the morning. It has worked a couple of times so far anyway.

Maybe I should get a BT mouse and KB and have less things attached to the USB.
