    When I clam shell to put it to sleep, it wakes its self up after 10 or so seconds, also when I put it in sleep from the menu, it also wakes up after 10 or so seconds. I reset the Pram and SMC controls but that didn't help.Resetting the SMC had worked in the past when this happened.

    Any ideas? Would a hard reset help?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you try to put it to sleep and it wakes up, check the Console log, Applications -> Utilities -> Console

    What does it say?

    Any other symptoms in the OS? Is this Lion or Snow Leopard?

    @ctk7 Are talking about console messages? right after i put it to sleep?

    @jav6454 Snow leapord, everything else is running fine, this happened before, but SMC reset fixed it that time.
