I was finally able to follow your instructions today, and while disabling the bluetooth wake feature did indeed cure the waking problem I was having, my Mac was still not going to sleep. In addition to doing as you suggested, I also changed the outlet plug that I was using on my APC surge protector that the Mac is hooked up to (I normally have it plugged into "master" but have noticed problems with that from time to time) to one of the non master plugs. Hallelujah my baby is now sleeping peacefully and not waking up until requested to do so.

Thank you very much, as this was starting to drive me quite bonkers.
