    As stated in the title I have a 15 inch unibody MacBook pro connected to a 24 inch Apple LED Display and the MBP won't sleep.

    It will turn off the screen based on the setting in Power Saver but never goes to sleep

    Any ideas??

    Does it do this when you just have it connected to the magsafe?

    I am aware of that....

    10 minute sleep and 5 minute turn off the display.

    Still not sleeping

    That really didn't answer the question...

    I assume that you have the MagSafe connected from the 24"? I asked if the computer fails to sleep when the 24" is not connected and just the magsafe that came with your computer is connected.

    Sorry not sure what I was thinking.

    Macbook on its own when not connected to the 24 inch display (video and magsafe) sleepis without issue.
    Only issue is when connected to the display

    check your power settings when plugged in vs not plugged in. They are different.

    Like I said, my power settings are 5 minutes screen dim and 10 minutes sleep. They are set up like this for both plugged and unplugged.

    I have the same issue with my 17" and a dell 22" monitor. Wont sleep. The monitor will sleep after a few minutes but the MBP, never does. I have fiddled with the power settings and it just wont sleep on its own. I can put it to sleep manually with no issues.
