I am having some problems with my Snow Leopard\Lioin machines after they got to sleep or screen saver starts. I have them configured to require password after slepp or screen saver begins. Sometimes the users password does not work until the network cable is removed. Sometimes they dont wake at all until i shutthemdown and sometimes i just get the mouse with a black screen. Any ideas?

thanks

Do you VNC or Remote into these machines?

I have remote server turned on because we are going to use apple remote desktop 3.5.

If someone is logged in through VNC it can cause that black screen problem.

And to paraphrase your question:

1.  You can't log in (from screensaver) unless you unplug the ethernet cable.
2.  Sometimes they don't wake up at all from sleep.  So it causes you to force a shut down.

Can you show me your console log messages just before sleep and when a wrong password is entered when the ethernet cable is plugged in, and not plugged in.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

This problem has gone away since we removed Admitmac from the systems.
