Find out what's keeping your Mac awake
Authored by: cmfalcon on Jul 05, '12 07:10:17PM

Can someone explain this in simple terms - not a programming type of guy. My Mac just started delaying when I ask it to sleep

Thanks

Find out what's keeping your Mac awake
Authored by: Notch Johnson on Jul 14, '12 08:33:03AM

If your Mac is simply delaying before sleep, you're ok. The computer is probably doing some clean up or set up prior to sleeping.

On the other hand, if your Mac is not sleeping at all after you either tell it to sleep or have it set in the Energy Saver System Preferences, this hint is for you.

For example, last week my Mac started to not sleep anymore. I came across this hint and it showed me out to figure out that it was because I turned on Internet Sharing (from the Sharing System Preferences) and that prevented system sleep.
