    Ok, the problem on my MBP just got fixed and now here my next one:

    No matter what settings i'm using my 24" iMac just wont sleep. This was not a problem on Leopard, got SL for 1 month now and its really getting annoying.
    I tried to reset everything I could, from holding down keys at startup to deleting .plist files....no result.

    Just for testing now, the sleep timer is now set at 1min and the screen also 1min.

    Screen goes dark but no sleep mode. The computer is on all day when it should go in sleep mode after 1 hour of inactivity.

    You gotta help me :p

    For the record, no programs are open....

    Network access?

    Hi,

    Have you considered the following possibilities?

    - network access,
    - some sort of 'feedback' coming from your mouse

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    There is this thing that keeps repeating itself:

    Code:
    7/02/10 20:17:37	com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[167]	(com.akamai.client.plist[704]) posix_spawn("/Applications/Akamai/loader.pl", ...): No such file or directory
    7/02/10 20:17:37	com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[167]	(com.akamai.client.plist[704]) Exited with exit code: 1
    7/02/10 20:17:37	com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[167]	(com.akamai.client.plist) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds
    But whats akamai? If I do a search, I cant find anything

    In applications

    Hi,

    Take a look in:

    ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    (~ is your home directory)

    There should be a file called "com.akamai.client.plist" in there.

    Delete it.

    Next time you reboot, it should be fine.

    Cheers,
