    I have a hot corner to put the mac display to sleep.

    Whether I use that or I use the 3 buttons to put the mac display to sleep, it wakes up after a while (probably due to some activity on the net or msn etc...)

    Is there a way to keep it asleep until I wake it up manually?

    Thanks,
    JH

    I have an all in one iMac.

    I'm putting the display to sleep as opposed to the hard drive.

    Well if you have an external hard drive or something of the sort on time machine then when that decides to back up your screen will come to life... I don't know of a way to ignore these interrupts...

    Maybe just set your screen to sleep after a certain amount of time so that if it gets turned back on then it will go back off by itself??
