    What sort of Mac do you have? If it's a MacBook Pro, beat it with a hammer until the screen goes dark.

    Go to terminal and type,

    pmset -g

    You'll get something like

    Does it try to go into sleep mode and wake up? If this is happening you might want to disconnect all things connected to the machine and try putting it to sleep...ipod is famous for waking up the a child that don't want to go to sleep.
