Default Vostro A90 won't wake from sleep - 02-04-2010, 02:28 PM

just got a new vostro a90 with a04 bios and 8gb ssd, that i've installed 10.5.8 on using latest NBI.

everything works that i can tell... but when it wakes from sleep, there is no cursor, the time is still when it went to sleep, and the OS appears to be locked up.

what should i be trying? thanks in advance.

Disable USB Legacy in the BIOS. If you enabled the old mirror friendly kexts in NBI I would disable them as they are known to cause issues with sleep as well.

Additionally, there have been posts about the STEC SSD's crapping out from OS X, so you might want a larger drive.
