Mac OS X sleep trouble

Post by Andre Berg » Sun, 02 Apr 2006 00:00:50


Can anyone confirm setting mutt's $timeout to a value smaller than
the system sleep timeout will keep the system (10.4.5/ppc here)
awake, or is this a muttng specific problem?

TIA

I know nothing about OSX's sleeping behavior, but if network activity is
enough to reset whatever "idle clock" that sleep is watching...
Obviously, a "Wake on LAN Activity" setting (if there is such a thing)
would flip the idle timer every time Mutt checks for mail on a remote
system.

It's the same with or without network connections, WOL-awareness,
fetchmail via crontab off and on, SSH connections, and the like. The
systems sleep, unless I'm running muttng with those timeout settings.

Earlier versions of mutt had to be compiled with --enable-buffy-size
on my system, but it doesn't have the desired effect any more.
Really, I have no idea what's going on.
