I just rebooted and now it sleeps in about 3 seconds... with the following apps running: Finder, World Clock Deluxe, Net Monitor, Default Folder X, iCal, Mail, Skype, Bean and MTNW.

So I'll be testing it in the next hours to see what happens.

What happens if you close the lid?

It takes 35 seconds before the light starts pulsing.

With a bunch of apps running it took about six seconds after closing the lid on my MacBook Pro for the pulsing of the light to start.

So, how do you suggest I proceed to figure this out?

thanks for the link. here's what i said there:

safe sleep writes the contents of memory to a disk file just in case the battery goes completely dead and it takes a while to write out a couple of gigs. it's easy to turn off.

OK... SmartSleep set to Sleep Only. That's what Super Sleeper does. But it still takes 30-35 seconds to sleep. Apparently something is interfering with the process.

Now what?

Message #13 - Posted 2009/10/03 - Doug Jantzer

I just rebooted (again) and now it MBP screen sleeps in about 3-4 seconds. It takes another two seconds for the second monitor to shut off.

My startup set of apps includes: Finder, World Clock Deluxe, Net Monitor, Default Folder X, Picture Switcher, iCal, Mail, and Skype.

By tomorrow sometime, it will take 35 seconds.

Now what?

My guess would be that some network process is timing out, delaying the sleep.
