    When I close the cover. I can manually put it to sleep, but no dice when shutting the lid. I have already tried an archive/install and erase and install, as well as zapping the pram and pmu.

    Any other ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    What peripherals do you have plugged in? When you say you reset the PMU, do you mean an SMC reset? :)

    Okay mate. Sorry if I was sounding anally retentive, but just thought I'd check to see you'd tried the right procedure. Anyway, what apps do you have running when you close the lid? :)

    Bugger. Does this happen when running only off battery power, adaptor power, or both?
