    Why oh why does it all of a sudden take 45-60 secs for it to go to sleep when I tell it to? Just a few weeks ago, I would tell it to go to sleep and poof...it was asleep. I cant think of anything I did.

    Zap PRAM (reboot and hold down "Command+Option+P+R" while it is booting, when you hear the startup sound for the seond time let go.
    Then try repairing permissions?


    Sounds odd.

    Does the screen dim for the 20 secs?

    The screen just sits there like it is now....on. I wait and wait, wondering whats going to happen. Then eventually, it goes to sleep as normal.
