    No problems here.

    Are you experiencing problems or just asking if there are any?

    Overnight? Not at all. In fact, I never shutdown my Macs, only put them to sleep and restart only when needed.

    No problem sleeping any Mac, but may I ask what an "Imacpro retina" is? Is it an iMac (this sub forum suggests it), a Mac Pro, a MacBook Pro or a MacBook Pro with Retina Display?

    Check here for all current Mac models.

    Actually irrelevant. They all sleep fine overnight.

    You have the computer set to sleep after 15 minutes which means all activity ceases until it is woken up again.

    In this case, I don't think so because you actively have a process going. But go ahead and try it, let us know what it does.

    yes so i let iTunes open playing for at leasst 1 hour, and when i come back the screen was off with music playing, so i guess if the hdd is working the mac will not be put on sleep.
