    May be an issue with a printer. Anything stuck in a queue?

    I am having the exact problem on the same model of Macbook Pro 13 (2.4GHz). It would sleep instantly after I close it lid until about a week ago. I really want to know what happen.

    I am having the same problem. Seemed to happen right after a firmware update. Even when I have no programs running it still goes to sleep slow. I'm running snow leopard on a macbook pro (the last model of the previous design).

    Right now my Mac shuts down faster than it sleeps. Apple, that is wrong.

    this is most likely a printer problem. open your printer & fax preference pane and check the print queue for each printer you have listed there. i'm almost certain you've got a messed up job in there somewhere. alas, this won't necessarily entirely fix your sleep issues, since you have several other slow processes in your log.

    Thanks for this. Had an old job stuck in the queue from work holding up my mbp's sleep. Because I wasn't at that network any more, apparently it kept trying, and killed a good bit of battery too.

    Thanks Tuttle and aftr101!
    Deleting stuck print jobs did it for me – the MacBook Pro again sleeps instantly like it used to

    Checking and clearing the print queue fixed the slow to sleep problem on my MacBookPro too.

    I had a job queued on a printer that was shared from another Mac that I was not even connected to any longer. I removed the queued job and deleted the printer and it sleeps pretty much instantly now. Easy. Yay!

    Holy smokes, clearing the queue worked!

    I had 3 printers with paused queues. (Incidentally, they are all 3 states away!)

    I only started experiencing the slow sleep problem a few Leopard updates ago -- I'm on a first-gen unibody Macbook Pro, which still runs like a tank. Thought maybe it was limited to my build gen. Guess not!
