    My computer will just not go to sleep on its own. I have tried the Command-Option-Eject option and it DOES go to sleep, or when I close to lid as well. I tried reseting the power management by holding down the power button for 10 seconds without the battery. It also does go to sleep when the computer is in "safe mode." Is there something causing it not to go to sleep? This is what my console keeps saying with all messages. I have also uninstalled Farsuite from my computer and restarted. Any suggestions? :(

    I had the same problem. The display would go off, but the darn thing wouldn't go to sleep.

    My problem was I had firefox open. Even if they window isn't open, but the application is still running in the background my MBP would not go to sleep.

    Try quitting out of it and see what happens then.

    Try that and let us know how it goes. Good Luck!

    you could just.. close the lid
    but i could see how it would be annoying when you walk away and dont come back

    try looking through your power settings?

    I had a similar problem. It wouldn't sleep at all though. It would go to sleep for 10 seconds or so, then wake right back up, even when the lid was down.

    I haven't done any conclusive tests, but I have suspicion it happens after I change graphics cards, until I restart, or possibly just when using integrated graphics. After a restart it seems to work fine, or at least it's working fine now, running on the 9600. I haven't tried switching over in a few days and I haven't had that problem in a few days.

    Edit: Now I see that you're not talking about a new mbp. I don't know what to tell you.

    Is there a CD in the drive? The magnet may also be triggered.

    this has to do with FarFinder by FlyingMac - it is a remote access software for your files...

    You have installed it most probably to try out and then uninstalled it. Turns out that the uninstall does not remove the daemon entry from launchd that is responsible for it to work as a service. I am researching how to do this and will post once I am successful but at least the problem source is identified

    For anyone who comes across this thread:

    - FarFinder doesn't stop your Mac sleeping. If your Mac won't sleep, uninstalling FarFinder won't help.

    - If your Mac won't sleep, check your Energy Saver settings in System Preferences.

    - If your Mac still won't sleep, see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1776


    If you have a problem uninstalling FarFinder like the poster above, see http://flyingmac.com/help/uninstallProblems.html
