    I posted a thread very long ago and did i a ton of research but still never find the solution.

    The problem is that my Unibody MBP fails to sleep with the lid open, even if I set the sleep time to 1 min and leave the machine idle for many many nights.

    I have nothing connected to my machine and I make sure that the machine is really idle by closing all the program.

    I even try creating new user and safe boot to check if the problem is caused by the third-party apps, but still my machine won't sleep in safe boot or the new user accounts I created.

    Already reset the pram/smc and the efi?? thingy. Nothing work.

    I used to have the sleep related issue (won't wake up from sleep) when i first got my machine, but it was fixed by the smc/efi update from apple.

    However, this not sleeping when idle that's bugging me seems to be caused by the 10.5.6 update.

    I would want to redo a clean install of leopard, but I don't know how, and worse, I don't have a drive to back up all my data. So, reinstalling is not a viable solution.

    There are a few things you can do other than a reinstall.

    1. Turn on "Restart automatically after a power failure" in System Preferences>Energy Saver>Options. Some have had success with this.

    2. Try the 10.5.6 combo updater from Apple.

    3. Wait until 10.5.7 and hope the update patches things up. :eek:

    Forgot to mention that I already tried the 10.5.6 combo update, but no luck.

    In the preferences there is an option for both AC Adapter and Battery; make sure you set them for each respective one.

    Sad to say, it's not such a stupid mistake.

    Also, i tried looking at the system log, but nothing showed up after one night of sitting idle.
