My Mac Pro system no longer sleeps., not even with the Sleep menu item. The screen turns off, but the system does not stay asleep. Worked fine in B7. No other changes.
pmset -g assertions shows nothing unusual.

Has anybody else experience this? It does work on my MBP.

Sleep hasn’t worked on my 2012 Mac mini since Public Beta 1. For the first 5 betas, the Mac also ran very, very hot when idle but this was cured from PB6 onwards. Since PB6 I can now start sleep from the Sleep menu item and it works most of the time, but timed sleep has never worked. This is with a clean install and no third party software to blame.
