Suddenly, my computer won't sleep. If I walk away it stays on. If I choose Apple > Sleep, the screen goes dark for about 5 seconds then comes back on. Repaired the boot volume and have restarted but neither fixes the problem. Any ideas?
Which darkwake are you using? I'm using darkwake=8 and it works fine

Thanks much. Just tried that and now it sleeps if I move the cursor to the hot screen, but if I walk away the screen saver comes on but the display does not sleep.

How long do you have to be idle for before your screen saver starts, and when does the display turn off?
Have you tried unticking "Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off"?

I have the screen saver set to start after 5 min but the display does not turn off (should at 15 min).

I'll have to check that last item when I return from traveling. Thanks much for your suggestions.
