    Much thanks to ADub128 for this post earlier in this thread.  The instructions below worked for me.

     

     

    Called the tech support line and this is what ultimately worked for me. Caveat emptor:

     

    1) Trash this folder

     

    Macintosh HD > Library > Preferences > SystemConfiguration

     

    2) Re-boot

     

    3) Now sleeps and wakes OK (so far!)

     

    4) Empty trash

    Does this also work for the "two monitor" issue? Or just for other issues mentioned by people in this thread?

     

    Thanks!

    Thank you for this idea.

     

    My iMac 27'' i5 (2009) doesn't go to sleep, too.

     

    I try deleting this folder this evening .... I really hope it'll work... :-/

    I've been following this thread for 3 weeks now and I finally figured out how to resolve the issue:

     

    1. Find a gun.
    2. Shoot yourself in the arm.
    3. The agonizing pain and threat of bleeding to death will make you forget that your computer doesn't go to sleep automatically.
    4. Go to a hospital.

    Sleep never occurs

     

    This sounds like a perfectly logical feature to me. You connect a large screen to use it. By closing the lid on the Macbook you could indicate you would want to shove it under the big screen, under a pile of papers or whatever. It would make perfectly good sense to make the situation you describe the default.

     

    A whole other question is whether the OS would let you configure the system to do what you want.

     

    My $0.02...

    English not being my native tongue, forgive me if I said anything wrong. It sounds like I meant what you are saying. And indeed, I am using a bluetooth keyboard when the MBP is on my desk.

    Ah, I see. We're on the same page. That's exactly what I meant with: "A whole other question is whether the OS would let you configure the system to do what you want."

     

    You want an OS builder NOT to take away things from previous release, anyway, not without the possibility to restore them (like the gestures etc).

    WMR, I've got the same issue as you. As long as Mail is running my iMac won't go to sleep automatically. I can Apple->Sleep and it works fine. Shutdown Mail and auto-sleep works like a champ, even with Safari and Widgets running. For me, and apparently you too, it's something with Mail.

    This night my iMac did not go to sleep - allthough it did last evening ... and I did not change anything.

     

    Two possible reasons (I guess):

     

    - Mail is active

    - iPhone is connected

     

    This is shown in Konsole - any ideas, what it means? -->

    SASL(-1): generic failure:

     

    These two things repeat all night over and over and over again...

    I have done what I used to do in my old Windows times and solved all the problems at once: I did a clean install of Lion and everything is back to normal. My Mac sleeps with Mail running, my Time Machine takes a very short time for backups...

     

    I tried everything mentioned in the discussion forums and everything Apple Support suggested but nothing helped. I hate to say it, but the only thing that helped was to format the HD and to do a clean install of Lion. Very time consuming for me and it reminded me of my old Windows times.

    Is there any piece of documentation from Apple which confirms that it is a feature that an MBP with secondary screen does not sleep when the lid is closed?
