    Ive recently set up my MBP to work in clamshell mode. The problem is I cant get it to go to sleep. Everytime i select the sleep option it turns back on which is becoming really frustrating!!

    I am using a logitech wireless mouse and an apple wireless keyboard.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this problem.

    Most likely one of your peripherals is causing it. Does your display have a built-in card reader? I know that when I cut the power off to my display it would wake up my PC from sleep.

    Try unplugging any extra devices and see if that helps.

    I also had that problem a few months ago. What was causing it was my Magic Mouse. The reason I noticed it was when the computer was sleeping and randomly turned on I noticed that the screen said "connected" with a logo of the Magic Mouse. What I have done to solve it is turn the mouse off first then put the computer into sleep with the track pad. When I go into "clamshell mode" I usually lift the lid so the computer can breathe better.
