    I have a MPB 4,1 on mavericks. If I close the screen and put it to sleep it will sleep for a period of time then randomly "wakes up" (i hear my optical drive make that wake up nosie) Anyone know why this happens or know how to fix it. Its not a huge issue but its just annoying and seems to kinda mess with how it runs after a while.

    This is why I shut my laptop down when traveling. I haven't seen this occur with any MBPs but I had a Dell laptop nearly cook itself to death before. Plus with out the indicator light that the rMBPs no longer have, its impossible to see if its still asleep, i.e., no pulsating light.

    from what I hear, 10.9.2 has introduced a number of sleep related issues, have you recently upgraded to that?

    Are you sure that's not the machine going to "safe sleep"? When you go to wake it next, do you also hear the Superdrive cycle? That doesn't normally happen when returning from sleep, only safe sleep.

    OP has a 2008 MBPro. PowerNap not supported on one that old.
