    I am running a headless mini on 10.9.2.

    It is used as a media server.

    My problem is I can't stop it from sleeping.

    I have tried the following:

    Energy Saver preferences set as follows:

    Computer Sleep - Never
    Display Sleep - 1 Minute
    Put Hard disk to sleep box - Unchecked
    Wake for Network access - Checked
    Startup after Power Failure - Checked
    Enable Power Nap - Unchecked

    I have also installed Caffeine and it is set to indefinite.

    Despite all the above the Mac mini still goes into sleep mode!

    Any help much appreciated as I can't come up with any thing else to do.

    Have you tired setting the display to sleep - NEVER?

    This happened to me when I set scheduled sleep & completely forgot. Have you checked?

    Wow, had completely overlooked that and yes, for some unknown reason, my computer was set to nap at certain times.

    Thank you!

    Ha!

    I did fix this issue through a scratch install on a new partition. PITA, but it did the trick. I've had this mini for quite a while now (early 2009) and I'm guessing some cruft got built up over time in the various upgrades I've done on it.
