Now do you have any programs thats require your computer to wake up with network is accessing it? (Most people dont)
not that I am aware of
Generally when the Imacs keep waking up its for one or two reasons, something on your network is waking the computer upTo solve that issue you can uncheck the wake on network access and hit apply and lock so that the setting sticks The other issue that could be a cause would be if you have any widgets in your dashboard that reach out to the internet for updates that could be waking up your computer
I will check my widgets, I have unchecked network access. how will I know if a widget is doing that?
I would say try putting your machine to sleep and check if it wakes its self up If it does try shutting down any widgets one at a time till you find if one of them is the issue.So shut one widget down put it in sleep and then try if that doesnt fix it try the next one, and so on
ok, I will try that if we have not fixed it yet. I believe network access might have been the problem as it has been chcked for some time.
Please let me know should this not solve the problem and we can keep working on the solution.
