external HDs, printers, etc. can indeed prevent your Mac from going to sleep.
Try disconnecting anything to see if the issue persist.

My MBP refused to go to sleep even if triggered manually. I had installed a Kensington 7-in-1 Media Reader in the ExpressCard slot and left it there. After removing it, the MBP was able to sleep normally.
The referred KB article helped me figure this out.
Hopefully a future OS update will address this.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 26, 2008 8:17 AM (in response to Steff Stringer)Hi Steffan,
Me too, exactly the same Kensington reader. I am actually not too happy; it took me ages of worry and concern to find the root cause of 'my' sleep issues and apart from that I now have spent money on something that doesn't work as expected. Can we complain with Kensington as they claim this product is OS compatible, or is it in fact an error by Apple?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
