iMac FP 800 (10.2.6) grey screen on wakeup - Mac Applications & Software

Does it do it when on 9.2? Does it do it when you don't have any of the non-stock stuff plugged in? In the pc world, this kind of stuff often happens when a device driver was poorly written and doesn't properly respond to the sleep or wake-up commands.

    For anyone interested, the problem seems to be the Dazzle USB
    CompactFlash reader I had plugged through the keyboard. For now, I'm
    leaving it disconnected unless I'm using it; I may experiment later and
    see if it works OK directly into the Mac. But in any case, it's waking
    reliably now. Whew. :-)
