Learn about Mac OS X: Why your Mac might not sleep or stay in sleep mode

HT1776 My MacBook Pro is going to sleep, even though I have "Never" set on my power, both battery and wallplug and on my screen saver.  This is stopping my backups.  What do I have to do to fix this?

My MacBook Pro is going to sleep.  I have "Never" set for both battery and wallplug power.  In addition, I have "Never" set for the screen saver.


Yet, the computer goes to sleep and the screen saver still comes on.  I can't get a backup accomplished because the computer keeps shutting off.


As I understand it, the MacBook Pro is not supposed to behave this way.


Any suggestions.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
