    My new 21.5" iMac didn't go to sleep automatically when in idle state. I read a lot of posts regarding this issue and tried a few of the possible solutions: resetting the SMC and so on.

    I finally was able to fix my problem (so far) with the help provided in the following link:

    Please, read the full text before you do anything. I hope it will work for you as it did for me.
