Can't put Pismo to sleep - Mac Portable

    Default Can't put Pismo to sleep

    Just recently when I select sleep from the menu or close the lid on my
    Pismo I get an error message saying " Your computer can't sleep because
    some system software is missing. Reinstall the software that came with
    your computer. "

    I haven't trashed any extensions recently so I assume it's a corrupt
    file. I'm running OS 9.2.2 and I reran the updater to no avail.

    I'd like to see if I can fix the problem without doing a clean install
    as that involves loading 9.0.4 and then running all the updates.

    Anyone know what files are missing or corrupt and how to load just the
    one I need?

    TIA

    I don't, but a check of the archives shows that you're not the only one.
