The paper deals with the nonlinear differential equation
 $\bigl(a(t)\Phi(x^{\prime})\bigr)^{\prime}+b(t)F(x)=0,\ \ \ t\in\lbrack1,\infty),$
in the case when the weight
 $b$
has indefinite sign. In particular, the problem of the existence of the so-called globally positive Kneser solutions, that is solutions
 $x$
such that
 $x(t)>0, {{x}'}(t)<0$
on the whole closed interval
 $[1,\infty )$
, is considered. Moreover, conditions assuring that these solutions tend to zero as
 $t\rightarrow\infty$
are investigated by a Schauder's half-linearization device jointly with some properties of the principal solution of an associated half-linear differential equation. The results cover also the case in which the weight
 $b$
is a periodic function or it is unbounded from below.
