    Any ideas ?

    I have no 3rd party SW installed.

    Using Mac wired keyboard and the Mac Magic Mouse.

    Display goes to sleep, mini does not.

    I can manually put it to sleep no problem...

    Anyone else have the issue ?

    Any tips ?

    Hoping I do not need to swap out.....

    Don't quote me but I seem to recall reading other posts saying there was a known bug with Lion and sleep.

    It's a brand new machine... I don't think it's tired :)

    Certainly, getting my mid-2010 Mac Mini to sleep took some perseverance and tinkering.

    I can't be certain, but I suspect that, counter-intuitively, The key for me was to never start the screen server. I also run PleaseSleep, but I'm not sure how much that helps.

    It sleeps pretty well now though.

    I have not put my hands on Lion. But I know that the sleep times can be set for both the computer and the display in the Energy Saver pane within the System Preferences under the :apple: menu in Snow Leopard.
