    Hi guys!

    My MacBook (Late 2008, aluminium) won't go to sleep immediately.

    I've been having this issue since I've updated from Lion to Mavericks a few weeks ago. Before the update the MB went to sleep within 2-3 sec. Now it takes between 20-30 seconds and it really annoys me :D

    I had a similar issue around half a year ago. Back then it was Google Chrome which prevented my Mac from falling asleep immediately. Apparently Google fixed that issue.

    Here is an excerpt from my log file (pmset -g log). I highlighted suspicious entries. I searched this board and I googled this. There are people with similar logfiles but no one has the exact same issue.

    Can you help me? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I'm having the same issue, with Mavericks 10.9.5 on a 2008 Pro Unibody. I haven't found any new information about it, have you?

    Some hints point to it possibly being related to RAM (I'm maxxed up to the 8MB which this model wasn't initially supposed to do). In my case, it may have also been connected to an issue I've had when I don't allow it to sleep all the way: the trackpad ceases to function and the keyboard suddenly has several slow/unresponsive keys. Very strange...
