    Specs:
    Mac OS X v. 10.6.5
    Desktop won't stay asleep
    I can put my desktop (OS X 10.6.7) to sleep but it almost immediately wakes up. One time I was told that if I had a USB hub attached, it was causing the problem. But I have disconnected the hub and it still sleeps for about 5 seconds before it "wakes" up. My only alternative is to shut down completely.

    Is there a solution?

    Have you tried...
    Apple > Preferences > Bluetooth > Advanced > uncheck "Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer" ? This may be it if you have a bluetooth mouse - just about anything makes the mouse react.

    If you have GeekTools, there are some issues with it not letting Macs sleep, because every time a Geeklet refreshes, it engages the harddrive into use.
    Thanks if you've helped me!

    VMWare is a miracle, I really recommend using it for windows
