Recently (within the past couple months) my 2010 MacBook Pro has started to take rather long to go to sleep when shuting the lid – between 35 and 40 seconds each time.  It used to take just a few seconds to see the light flashing before a couple months ago.  I ran the "pmset -g log" and this is what it came up with:

Any ideas?

    I reinstalled the operating system (clean install snow leopard and upgrade to mavericks) with no luck. Putting it to sleep actually takes longer!  It was fine when running snow leopard.

    I have the same problem. Yesterday I did a clean install of Mavericks and am re-installing apps and moving folders from my TIme Machine one at a time. However, with very little software re-installed, I'm still getting 30 second sleep times, and my terminal thing looks very similar to yours.

    I can't find any clear information on what com.apple.apsd means beyond that it has something to do with push notifications. Can anyone help?

    I am having the same sort of issues with MBP running Mavericks 10.9.1


    I keep seeing things like AddressBookSour or DNs things.


    Could it be something with iCloud?
