    And I can hear my Mac Pro waking itself up from sleep every so often. What does this mean?

    Try to uncheck option "Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer" in System Preferences/Bluetooth/Advanced.

    This happened to me when I had my USB printer sitting atop a small refrigerator. My hypothesis is that the interference it produced when it started cooling was received by the printer and the computer interpreted this as activity on the USB, waking up the computer.

    In other words, check if any attached devices may be malfunctioning.

    I'm not positive but I think it might have been because Logic was running.
