    For some reason, after I upgraded to Leopard, then whenever I put my MacBook Pro to sleep, it spontaneously wakes up after some time (can be from a few minutes to an hour or two.) I don't know why this is happening, but I know for sure that it's related to Leopard since I put my laptop to sleep every night (it's in my bedroom) and after upgrading to Leopard, it started to just wake up a short while after putting it to sleep.

    At first I thought it could be Time Machine, so I disconnected all my external drives, but that didn't seem to work.

    I have also tried resetting my SMC but that did not appear to fix it.

    Does anyone know why this is happening?
    Thanks in advance!

    There have been a lot of reports that they are waking up randomly and at specific times like 12:00 am and 1:00am. Some have solved this by setting an auto wake for a specific time once a week so they only have to deal with it waking weekly.

    Are there any bluetooth devices nearby? Go to System Preferences and see if "allow bluetooth devices to wake computer" is checked in the "keyboard and mouse" pane (bluetooth tab).

    My wife's MacBook used to do this when this when it was set to allow waking (even when there were no bluetooth devices around). When I installed Leopard, this option became selected again, for no apparent reason.

    My MBP started to wake from sleep (within a minute) after installing the short version of the 10.5.1 update. I went through and shut down all open processes, shut down the BT mouse and then rebooted. That seemed to fix the problem.

    In the mean time I have re-installed the 10.5.1 using the the 109MB version and the sleep problem has not reappeared.

    Win shares not appearing in the finder and no trac pad tap clicking in BC are my main complaints now.
