    Just a quick question. I have my display sleep and computer sleep set to the same time, yet when I check console logs the system will sleep a few minutes after the display goes to sleep. Is this normal or am I being paranoid. I did a clean install and it does the same thing.

    Apple has this on their website "Note: Hard disk activity does not prevent display sleep, but it does prevent system sleep. It is not uncommon for the display to sleep before the system goes to sleep if both types of sleep are set to occur after the same length of inactivity"

    But this happens to me all the time, not some of the time.

    How can the system sleep before the display on an imac?! What is the display doing when the system is asleep?

    That's not what I meant. What I meant is I have them to sleep at the same time. But the display will go to sleep first, and then the system will 2-3 minutes later.
