    Hi everyone,

    I recently updated to Sierra, and I noticed that when i put the computer to sleep, it seems as though only the display is off, not the computer itself.

    And I know this is the case since the wifi is always connected plus I can hear it. Whereas before, when I would put it to sleep it would disconnect from the wifi and no processing sounds. There are no apps running in the background, nothing trying to access the network or any such things.

    Is this a bug or is everyone's "putting to sleep" mode this way now??

    Thanks

    for future reference, if this happens to you, I finally found the answer.

    I had to reset my printing settings, which took out all printers from the list.

    But my mac now falls asleep! yeyyy
