Sorry another "my mac won't sleep" but I have at least done the ground work.

Putting the mac to sleep wakes almost immediately. After looking through the logs I work out it is the keyboard.

I have borrowed another keyboard and when this one is plugged in the mac sleeps fine.

My keyboard appears to work fine, but keeps my mac awake.

Both are genuine mac keyboards.

Any thoughts????

Thanks in advance...

Your best bet is to make an appointment at the Genius Bar. It sounds like a faulty keyboard and it may warrant a replacement from Apple.
