    Today I noticed that my mid 2010 MBP is not automatically sleeping...

    I ran Apple's extended hardware test, along with TechTools Pro 5 from AppleCare disk. Both passed.

    Reset the SMC and PRAM.

    I'm still not able to auto sleep...

    I'm worried

    Is there a way to see what exactly is causing my computer to not automatically sleep? Console messages or something?

    What applications are you running when you try and sleep?

    Try the app PleaseSleep and see if the computer will sleep automatically.

    I had the same problem a few months back. It lead back to WDSmartware.

    Ok now it sleeps... Don't really want a band-aid fix though. I would feel more comfortable to know that nothing is wrong with my computer...

    Interestingly enough, I have a WD external with Smartware. I used it earlier today, but I don't have it plugged in at the moment...
