    My MBP behaves just like my daughter, it won´t go to sleep on it´s own.
    I have no idea how to fix this. I´ve tried mroogle, but found no solutions.
    Can it be a 3rd party app that prevents it from sleeping?
    I use Quicksilver as the only one I can think of that´s "on" all the time.
    Any ideas?

    Oh......I thought you were going to say it's really hot, at which point I would have said how inappropriate that comment was even though I'd find it kind of funny.





    Do you have any bluetooth or wireless keyboards/mice linked to it? If the box is checked, try unchecking the "Wake for network access" checkbox in Energy Saver (in Preferences).

    :D
    That made me laugh.

    I have no such things connected, nor do I have the "wake for network access" checked.

    I just don´t get it

    Thanks.
    I tried a Safe Boot and turn airport and everything else off. Still no sleep.
    What I now realized is that I changed my HD to a WD Scorpio Blue 640GB, could that be the cause of my troubles?

    Absolutely; it could be that the hard drive isn't spinning down properly or has power management of its own that's conflicting with that of the operating system's. Unchecking the "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" box under Energy Saver in System Preferences may tell us what's going on if it helps. I think you'll need to use the hdapm command line tool, though I'm not sure.

    boy these threads are getting dirtier. first "honeymoon is over. my macbook pro misbehaved." and then this. Am I the only sick guy here to laugh out loud at these threads?

    not to mention that it's getting more and more awesome. I'd love to see next months threads.



    Enlarge your Macbook Pro?

    Guess what, it only took an update to 10.6.4 to make her behave and go to sleep. (Wish it was that simple with my daughter)

    This is the first I've heard of 10.6.4 solving more problems than it creates though :p

    It crashes every once in a while and has problems handling memory, but other than that it is pretty solid!

    Yes ... When I read the title I thought maybe the MBP was being bad ... my 9 year old thinks she is 14 and has been so mouthy lately!

    You made my day.

    And JodyK; mine is just 4, not looking forward to when she thinks she´s "grown up"
