    I wanted to know if anyone else is having this issue.

    It fails to sleep after the given time. Screen dims but I can still hear it running.

    If I manually put it to sleep, it clearly makes noise (hard drive parks heads).

    I currently only have the following software installed.

    1) MS Office
    2) Plex
    3) Fusion
    4) Iwork
    5) Istat

    I checked all that

    And I also reset SMC and PRAM.

    Still no go.

    I decided to wipe/reinstall.

    It sleeps now.

    I am beginning to think it is VMware Fusion.

    I will hold off installing that until the bugs get worked out further.

    Check out one of my previous posts. I fixed this same problem a few days ago.
