I found out what was causing my G4 to remain comatose after sleep. I acquired an Epson CX4600 printer/copier/scanner last week. If my G4 goes to sleep while the CX4600 is powered on and connected to it with the USB cable, it will not wake. Unplugging the Epson after the onset of sleep does not prevent the bug. The peripheral must be detached/unpowered when the G4 enters sleep.

In a secondary eureka moment, this 101 blog has made it onto the blog roll of Alligators in a Helicopter (see link in Screenwriting Links). Thanks, Steve. Sorry the Epson scores higher.

Bonus minivan coverage:

I wanted to retrieve the van before supper, but my wife wanted to wait until afterward. Here in Canada, vehicles must use daytime running lights, and even though this was a California van when we bought it, we had to install daytime-running-light functionality to import it.

The battery was dead when she went to get it at 9:45 on the way to the airport. No big deal. She bought jumper cables this morning and went to get it with Stuart.

Double bonus "I hate my house even when it's empty" coverage:

Between 10 p.m. and midnight, my home gained Stuart's fiance, my sister, her husband, and her two kids for the long weekend.
