Computer will not stay in sleep mode if triggered from apple barsleep option

Discussion in 'Apple' started by M. John Matlaw, Nov 23, 2011.

  1. For the past couple of weeks I've noticed that if I invoke sleep mode
    the bugger pops up after 5 seconds. It will go into sleep mode in
    accordance to energy setting on its own. I thought I'd try to fault
    isolate by disconnecting things one by one, shutting down and starting
    up but when I got down to a bare system and still had a problem I looked
    at the console log. Unfortunately, I don't really no how to read them.
    I'm guessing that the problem is with the printer software. Anyway,
    console output below. Any ideas appreciated. (And yes I did try to
    sing it lullabies as I clicked on sleep - no luck.) sorry for the
    lengthy excerpt, I didn't know what, if anything, to edit out.

    Son of gun. Finally spend some time on the problem and for the first
    time in weeks the sucker stays in sleep mode. If I could only delete my
    usenet posts I could probably solve most of my problems this way.

    There are bugs in some Mac OS systems on this. What is your set
    up? Have you got 'Wake for network access' ticked or unticked in
    the energy panel? Do you click the lock afterwards? Do you log
    out and restart and check to see the preference is unchanged?

    Often the cause is a piece of software you have installed that is waking up
    the machine. For instance I've seen reports of dashboard widgets causing
    similar behavior:

  5. I'm using a MacMini Macmini3,1 early 2009 core 2 duo 2.0 ghz running
    10.6.8. 8gb mem. Just swapped out monitors from a 23-inch Apple Cinema
    HD Display (M9178LL/A) to a 27-inch 27h LED Cinema display. The
    problem had started to happen before the switch. 'Wake for network
    access' is unticked and the lock is unlocked. The settings remain the
    same between startups with 'Wake for network access' and 'Start up
    automatically after a power failure' unticked and the other two ticked.
    This is really strange but the problem seems to have gone away shortly
    after I posted after having gone on for a couple of weeks. I thought
    for sure I had it figured out. The only thing I could think of that
    might have changed since the problem arose is that I started leaving the
    printer powered down. But I just experimented and after powering down
    the printer, shutting down the computer and booting up again the problem
    still seems to have disappeared. I'm beginning to think it's a
    Heisenberg uncertainty principle type of thing. Observing the problem
    closely makes it go away. Seems to work with some faucet leaks as well.
    I'm hoping the logs help if the problem recurs.
    Thanks,
    John

  6. As I posted in my reply to dorayme the problem seems to have gone away
    for now. I'm still suspicious of the printer software. It shows up
    repeatedly in the log. Perhaps I'll bug Brother if the problem recurs.
    Thanks,
    John

    There is a terminal way that is claimed to help track the reason
    at

    http://osxdaily.com/2010/07/17/why-mac-wakes-from-sleep/

    that you might try if the problem persists.

    About your printer, I used to have some problems with this sort
    of thing on a Powermac, it was more to do with waking up a
    screen, (there was no way I could use hard disk sleep
    consistently for other reasons - I let it run all day and night
    and it was never the worse for it as far as I know). Since I got
    my Intel Macbook, I never have the printer USB connected unless I
    am wanting to actually print something (rarely). If you feel it
    is the printer, perhaps do what I do. A bit of a nuisance I guess
    if you want to print and go out and expect it to sleep after it
    has finished.
