    Since I upgraded to 10.9, it takes a long time before my Mac Pro goes to sleep when I select the "sleep" command in the finder menu. Sometimes, when the computer awakes, it hangs and it is a hard crash, because the only solution is to press the power button. I have never experienced this with 10.6-10.8.
    My startup disk is an OWC SSD Mercury Extreme, I have never had problems with it, until now. 10.9.1 didn't solve the problem.
    Booting under 10.6.8 under another disk doesn't give this problem.

    Some additional info: I have a Calldigit USB3 eSata card installed. However, there are no sleeping problems under 10.6-10.8 with the drivers installed.

    Problem still not solved under 10.9.1

    I still have frequent hard crashes and it takes many seconds before my mac goes to sleep when I use the command "sleep". I reinstalled the Calldigit USB driver, it seems that the same driver is used under 10.8 and 10.9. The computer is rock stable when I choose a different startup disk with 10.6,7 or 8.
    :mad:
    Please help.:(

    have you tried removing the caldigit driver, just for testing?

    And post the crash log; maybe we can see something.

    I checked the logs but there are no crashes registered from the past ten days, although I had several fatal lockups. Strange.
    I will try uninstalling the Calldigit driver

    Uninstalling the driver doesn't solve the problem. Delays in sleeping and lockups remain. But only one time the logs says it is a crash:
    Panic (system crashes) log:

    I reset the SMC and the problem isn't solved.

    Get rid of that Espionage app you installed and this kext that comes with it. There have been a few threads about that causing KPs on Mavericks.

    I can't find com.taoeffect.ispy.kext even not by making invisible files visible.
    I trashed some other files containing the word ispy

    Try opening Finder then hit shift-command-g (all the keys at once) and paste in the path below then enter. That should bring up a folder with all your kext files.

    Mavs does not seem to be searching the main Library folders for some reason.

    Code:
    /System/Library/Extensions

    I deleted all ispy files (Espionage). The delay in sleeping when I choose the sleep command in the finder isn't solved. I unchecked wake up for network access in the Energy Saver Control Panel. Fingers crossed....

    The sleep issue may be something else, but I bet getting rid of Espionage fixes your crash issue.

    Look in Activity Monitor and see what third party process are running there that may be conflicting with Mavs.

    Maybe try a safe mode boot by holding the shift key when booting and see how it sleeps from there. A safe mode boot starts without any startup items so that can help tell you if a third party startup or login item is causing troubles.

    The Espionage files are all deleted.
    I tried to startup in the safe mode, but it doens't work. After Apple logo appears, a rotating wheel keeps spinning. The desktop doens't appear.

    sorry to hijack this thread... but i dont think the problem has to do with the apps you have, but more of the 'p'OS itself.

    my problem with late 2013 rMBP pos is that it becomes unresponsive/crashed in the morning after i put it to sleep the night before. EVERY SINGLE EFFING MORNING.

    I guess the pos crashes after a certain duration in sleep. From my day to day use throughout the day the pos wakes up fine from sleep. It only craps out on me when i need to continue my work in the morning and find that the pos is in deep sleep.
