    So, let me provide some background details. I own a mid-2010 core i7 15-inch Macbook Pro with the 7200 HDD. It has been great to me so far, except for the lack of sleep it gets. I usually leave the lid of the notebook open when it's not in use; the sleep setting is 5 minutes for both computer and screen sleep. However, my computer refuses to sleep after being left alone for 5 minutes. The problem is simple. The solution is not so simple.

    The problem started about a week ago (I purchased the computer around the beginning of May).My MBP will sleep when it is closed, when I click the sleep button on the Apple menu, when I click the power button then press sleep, and when I use SleepX.

    I brought it in to an Apple genius today to have a look and he concluded that it was an operating system flaw (after resetting the PRAM, SMC, and deleting the SystemConfiguration folder in the preferences folder in the library of "Macintosh HD"). Basically, no fix there.

    The obvious next step was to call Apple Care. First, I got a representative who knew nothing of my problem. I was transferred to a senior adviser, who told me to reset the PRAM and SMC. He then told me to delete some plists from my user's library folder. None of this worked. he then told me to disconnect my Airport and printers. Nada. He then told me that his "buddy" (an apple customer service engineer) was going to help me out.

    So, I was transferred for the last time. The guy told me to send him a log using the "send to Apple" feature on the "about this Mac" file menu. He then told me to reinstall OSX and call him back if it works. It didn't. So, that's where I stand as of now; I will let you know what happens next.

    I don't think you actually said what the problem was. Do you mean that it will not sleep automatically after 5 minutes?

    Wow, I forgot the most important part. Yes you are correct. I will edit it now.

    I have a Apple representative's number, and I will be calling him tomorrow to do a full-reinstall with me. If that doesn't work, he claims it is a hardware problem so either a repair or a replacement will be in order.

    As for SleepX, you need to be a Apple Developer to get the program. You can register for an Apple Online Developer Membership for free and download it there.

    I had that issue and finally tracked it down to Steam. It was fixed with a software update they did last week.

    Try creating a new user and see if the same thing happens.

    Subscribing. I have the exact same problem. It is not a deal breaker, but it is annoying.

    I have the same model system and have seen this problem a few times my self. At first I thought it had something to do with leaving Xcode/iPhone simulator. But my system just went to sleep with it them open.

    Rebooting the system does seem to fix it. I do have steam installed so that might be the problem in my case. The problem has not shown up in a few days and I have not had steam open recently.

    Steam is installed on my system. I created a new user, but it still won't autosleep.

    If updating Steam and adding a user doesn't work, I would seriously consider backing up to time machine, or even a full HDD image backup (carboncopycloner) and trying a clean install. If the sleep problem is still there with a totally fresh (and updated) 10.6.4, then you have a good case to get it replaced by Applecare.

    If it fixes it, then you have the wonderful task of reinstalling each program you have until the offender breaks your computer again, at which point you get to start over and not install that program.

    I had this problem. It ended up being a process that kept trying and failing. Check your log to see if there is a process that is trying to initiate and thus keeping your computer from going to sleep. That would be why it would work fine when closing the computer or using the menu command, but not when there is inactivity. Then you just find the plist that is causing the problem and drag to trash and restart the computer.

    Thanks Benlee. I actually sent my logs to Apple while talking to one of the engineers. They saw what you experienced, but dragging that plist to the trash didn't help.

    Don't worry, I have a clone and a time machine backup ready.

    what was the process? perhaps it is recreating the plist. My problem was with software relating to my Lexmark Printer. If you could post a picture of your current log maybe it would help.

    Try deleting this plist:

    com.apple.launchd.peruser

    I'm not on my Mac right now so I can't tell you where it is, but I think it is in User/Application Support/ Launchagents or something to that affect, maybe someone else can help with its location. after you drag it to trash. Empty the trash and then restart your computer. Set the sleep timer to a minute and see if it works.

    I can't seem to find that plist, even after some googling. I deleted some other plsits from that folder though.

    Let's see what happens

    It may also be under library and not user/library

    Ok, update time. I called my buddy over at AppleCare, and he guided me through an erase and install.

    Automatic sleeping worked after that on the test account, but after my files were moved over via Migration Assistant, everything went back to normal (bad normal that is). I have a lingering suspicion that it might be Growl, so I deleted that.

    I will let you know what happens after I speak to Apple again.

    Do you have littlesnitch installed? That could also be the culprit.

    Hey guys, I fixed it. Western Digital Smartware was responsible for my mbp not sleeping. Here's what happened: after 2 minutes (my set sleep time) my computer put out the command to sleep. WD Smartware said no thanks, even though my external wasn't plugged in. So essentially every time it tried to go into auto sleep, smartware prevented it from happening.

    I guess just another argument to not buy hdd's with crapware on them.

    How do you completely uninstall WD Smartware?

    Maybe it's the source of my sleep problem also because I have an external WD HDD.

    I actually never "removed" it per say. Rather, I used appcleaner for the existing smartware.app, reformatted my external hdd, and just never installed smartware when prompted after plugging it in for the first time after the format. Not an elegant solution, but now my mbp can sleep perfectly.
