I have the same thing. Sometimes, the iMac immediately wakes after cmd-option-eject. When I press cmd-option-eject again it mostly stays asleep. Via the menu by Apple-Sleep always puts the iMac permanent to sleep.

So it looks like there is a difference between Apple-Sleep (menu) and cmd-option-eject.

By the way, as far as I remember the key-combination cmd-option-eject was always mentioned in the menu, but not now anymore. This is since Lion?
