Hello,

When querying "SHOW PROCESSLIST" we always have some processes sleeping for 400-600 seconds. What can possible couse that? We are using MySQL 4.1 mixed MyISAM and InnoDB environment.

Thanks

Sleeping

The thread is waiting for the client to send a new statement to it.

Basically, you have a client connection that has been opened and not yet closed, but has not submitted a query or statement in the past 400-600 seconds.
