With my mini 9 (8gb stec and osx 10.5.7), I've noticed that if I try to put it to sleep and the power light doesn't start pulsing on and off after a while I can sometimes get it to do so by either closing the lid or inserting and removing the ac adapter plug.

In general, sleep works brilliantly on my hackintosh'd mini 9, save for one issue. If I have bluetooth enabled and legacy usb disabled in bios, when I open the lid, the computer will think I'm pressing the zero key over and over until I hit another key. If I have bluetooth disabled and legacy usb enabled, the computer will think I'm pressing tab over and over. Additionally, with the first combo, if I hit the power button and select restart after waking the computer from sleep, it won't actually restart, but with the second combo, it will. Odd, but certainly not deal breakers.

I have occasionally had the computer fail to sleep, usually when a program was frozen. Like others have said, if the power led isn't pulsing, it's not actually asleep. I don't think this is unique to our minis though, since all of my computers, windows or mac, have failed to sleep at times.
