    I have 3G USB Modem from "Three" here in the U.K. I've noticed that my Mac will not sleep when I have it attached - after sleeping it will cause an immediate wake up.

    Is there anything I can do about this? (Apart from disconnecting it when I want to sleep, which obviously is not ideal, and renders the automatic sleep in Energy Saver useless.)

    In the Energy Savings Preference Pane, deselect "Wake on Network Access" that should solve the problem.
