This basically means that something related to the internet connection is keeping the computer from sleeping. Maybe some app is still open and active...that you thought you closed or quit.
Remember clicking on the red button in the upper part of an open window only closes the window (does not quit the program)...just in case this is happening.
Also, many folks (on purpose or by mistake)...download & install apps that "auto-launch" on startup...thus they are always active. If one or more of these apps communicates with the internet...this could be the source of the issue as well.
Another thing you can do is...open Activity Monitor (after you think that you've closed everything)...and examine "All Process's" to see if something is actually open that you thought was closed.
These ideas may not all apply...stuff for you to investigate.
