I can get it to go to SLEEP when using the MENU but I was wondering if anyone gets it to sleep with using the timer option in Preferences?

I can confirm as well that "Please Sleep" does the trick. The app is lightweight and syncs with Energy Saver settings. It proves adequate for the time being, but if anyone knows how to solve the auto-sleep problem apart from this app, I too would appreciate the fix!

I am guessing that this was suggested in order to ensure that no other program or process was preventing sleep? If so, each value in the generated list showed as "0."

Is there something else I'm missing?

Yes, the idea is to see if there is any software running keeping the computer from auto sleep.
Were there any processes listed in the 'Listed by owning process'?

No such thing shows up after running the code. Only the system-wide status. There are about four additional "Kernal Assertions" with various IDs, but I'm unsure if those are relevant or not.

Post the entire output. And yes, Kernel Assertions can be relevant...

That eliminates any assertions as an issue. Check your system.log at the time when auto sleep should have kicked in. See if there is a reason/problem in there.

Otherwise, I wonder if something is causing the system to think the user is active? I think OS X refers to this as a 'tickle'... What kind of input devices do you have connected?
