    Hi All,

    My Macbook Pro won't go to sleep automatically if I leave it unattended whilst running on battery. The Energy Saver options are at default:

    Computer Sleep - 10 minutes
    Display Sleep - 2 minutes

    What I find is when I come back to my computer it's completely dead, turned off and the battery is depleted.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    You have something running in the background preventing it from going to sleep.

    Missing daemon?

    I had the same problem a few weeks ago. Looking at the log files I could see that the system tried to start a daemon belonging to an application I had previously uninstalled. Apparently OS X never gives up if the file is missing (like it was in my case). Instead, OS X tries to start the missing daemon every 10 seconds. Manually deleting the related .plist file and rebooting solved the issue for me.

    I had same problem and found solution. I have insalled adobe trial software and when downloading adobe software they install akamai download manager. I deleted akamai folder from applications and that caused the problem. In console I had this output:
    Code:
    3.4.2011 21.22.51	com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[232]	(com.akamai.client.plist[5792]) Bug: launchd_core_logic.c:4139 (24498):13

    I started to download again one of the trial versions of adobe products and yet again akamai download manager was in my applications folder. This time I used uninstaller and my MBP can sleep again :)
