    Hello,

    I´m facing a problem:

    My MacBook Pro 17" late 2011 model, doesn't go to sleep when I close the lid.

    I already made a clean install of Mavericks, reset SMC, PRAM, etc.

    I made a short video of the problem:

    Open /Applications/Utilities/Console and see if there is an application error affecting the sleep problems. Check the logs after telling the Mac to sleep. This will help you trace down the error.

    Do you have System Preferences->Energy Saver "Wake for Ethernet network access" turned on?

    I turned off and in sharing it´s all turned off too.

    The problem persists, I will take the MBP to the apple technical assistance.

    The problem was the Sleep LED (infrared+magnetic sleep sensor) malfunction.
