Hi there,

I don't know what to do... My Mac just doesn't go to sleep after the set 10 minutes. My sharing settings are all turned off.

I read that the following command should help ... But what does it say to me? What do I have to do? I don't get it.

Here is an excerpt from Terminal pmset -g assertions:


Assertion status system-wide:
PreventUserIdleDisplaySleep 0
CPUBoundAssertion 0
DisableInflow 0
ChargeInhibit 0
PreventSystemSleep 0
PreventUserIdleSystemSleep 0
ExternalMedia 1
DisableLowPowerBatteryWarnings 0
EnableIdleSleep 1
NoRealPowerSources_debug 0
UserIsActive 0
ApplePushServiceTask 0

Why do you need auto sleep? Just close it and it will sleep. :confused:

Have you tried a simple restart of the mac?
