    I find that tithe iMac 2011 goes to sleep when downloading OS X 10.8.3.

    Presently running the 10.8.3.

    Any idea what the problem?

    Should I complain to apple care?

    Thanks

    Why do you download OS X 10.8.3 when you already run it? And where do you download it from?

    Have you looked at System Preferences > Energy Saver and set the sleep time to Never Sleep yet?

    I think the iMac should detect that the download is going on from AppStore Anand should not go to sleep.

    This problem was not there with older versions of osx

    Are you sure it goes to sleep and just not shuts off the display?

    You could try Caffeine for letting it download without going to sleep or that Energy Saver thing I spoke of earlier.

    As I do not run OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, I cannot say if it is a bug or not, but most likely it is one.


    PS: It is called "OS X", not "sox", as you did that mistake again in your duplicate thread about the same issue.

    I am sure it sleeps because now I can not wake up the iMac from mouse , trackpad or the keyboard.

    It has to done through power button only.

    Strange though, as a sleeping Mac can be awakened by a keyboard or mouse or trackpad, unless they are all Bluetooth devices and waking via Bluetooth devices has been disabled via System Preferences > Bluetooth > Advanced.
