    Good evening. Since the last but one Mavericks update, my Mac has refused to go to sleep, which is inconvenient to say the least. Followed the usual rigmarole: switching off bluetooth, etc, but it's still happening. I ran Terminal tonight which produced the result below. I'm not a Terminal expert, so does anyone have any suggestions, please? XXXXs used to hide my Mac identity. Many thanks in advance. W
