Hey everyone,

 

I have a brand new iMac that is going to sleep on me randomly and I can't figure out why.  Below is the console log.  Can anyone shed some light as to what might be going on?

    Have you done a PRAM reset, CMD+Option+p+r...

    In fact, do 3 in a row, takes a bit of time.

    Any change?

    Same thing happening to me.  Air wakes from sleep, everything is fine for maybe 30 seconds, then it goes back to sleep -- while I'm typing!  Then I wake it a second time and observe the same log entries, including the ones about Chrome. 

     

    Immediately after the second wake, I also observe the Wifi being grayed out and re-initializing (plus log entries), then a bunch of network connection-aware apps (e.g. Adium) come back online, too.

    I'm having the exact same issue, including this part:

     

    My local apple store has swapped the graphics card but to no avail. Resetting PRAM seems to be a solution, at least now, 30 minutes after the computer had it's last fit, and decided to lock up on me every 10 seconds.

    It's chrome, just discovered the same problem with mine. 

     

    Try this:

     

    Set your display to sleep at 3 min, and your computer to sleep at 4 (restart after making the change)

    Make sure chrome is quit.

    Start a timer and let the computer idle, don't touch any keys.

    The display should go dark at 3 min,

    At 4 min the light at the front should pulse, if it does, it's asleep, if not, it's something else.

     

    For me I noticed that it took 4.5 min for the light to start pulsing, and I checked the console.  The same PM timeout error I got.  I closed Chrome and ran the test and the computer slept at 4 min.
