you got that right my friend.., i think i have finally fixed this problem that has been bugging me since ..., a long time ago, i told the forum members here that i found the fix.., but i didn't know how i had fixed it, a week or two later the wake-up thingy kept on bugging me, it returned, i told myself i will return when i find the real fix and tell the world about it..., well folks i fixed the "sleep, wake-up" problem.

i took my Logitec Wireless Mouse out of the loop, plugged in my Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse and like magic,
............. I HAVE NOT HAD A WAKE UP IN TWO WEEKS !!! ......, where it once was 8 to 10 times a day, randomly.

sooooo, if you have any hardware other than Apple devices plugged into your iMac and having wake up problems, consider that may be where to start looking.

what's wrong and how can i fix it help !
I suffered this a few weeks ago, and eventually traced it to low battery level in the wireless keyboard, once new batteries were fitted everything is back to normal.

Bowcaps.., yaa know it seems to always be the simple thing that cause problems and we start looking for the most complicating fixes and pass up the easy solution in favor of the high end fix.

would you happen to know how i could add "UPDATE" to the title of this topic ?
