Find out what's keeping your Mac awake
Authored by: bjmac on Jul 17, '12 06:06:26AM

Thanks for this helpful hint. I was hoping it would get me to the bottom of what's been consistently happening with my MacBook Pro - even two calls to Apple Tech has not solved it. Simply put, my MacBook (running Lion 10.7.4) will not go to sleep by itself, no matter what we've tried. It will go to sleep when you tell it to go to sleep, but no matter what the Energy Savings setting are set to, it will never goes to sleep on it's own.

Running the script you suggested returned the following, so I'm not sure this script helps my issue.

Anything further I can try?
