    I've been running 10.3 fine for a while. I have multiple users on
    the machine. Using the Energy Saver control panel, I was able to set
    the preferences to have my machine go to sleep after 10 minutes of
    inactivity. (I also checked the 'spin disks down when possible'.)

    any more. I've checked the Energy Saver settings with pmset. Everything
    looks as it should.
    How can I tell what processes may be preventing the machine from

    course ;-)
