    Default MacBook Pro mid 2009 sleep issue

    Hi, sorry if my post is not as comprehensive as necessary. I just bought my first used Mac yesterday (Saturday) and I just realized a slight problem. When I close the lid for the MacBook to go to sleep, it undergoes an endless cycle of going to sleep then turning back on. I disabled "Wake for Network Access" on the power options and bluetooth. I've done a SMC? restart and pulled out the .com.apple.autowake.plist onto my desktop and re-booted. When I force sleep from the apple menu, the sleep light "breathes" normal though sometimes I still hear the fans going (is this normal?) but when I close my lid, the light will go off as if sleeping, then turn on for several seconds and repeat. I have no USB devices connected or peripherals. I've quit all my running programs, but still the same thing happens. Specs on the MacBook are: MacBook Pro 13-inch Mid 2009, Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2(11C74 but soon to update though) 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB 133 MhZ DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB.

    On the console it says:

    It mentions hibernate stuff and wake reason: EHC1, port 5, unknown USB device etc. Are there any suggestions or input? If any more information needs to be provided, let me know. Thanks in advance. Also, I do not have Candelair installed. Though, it might've been previously installed and left some traces?

    If you come in here all prepared with all your specs and log files and you even kinda know what they mean how do you expect us to be able to look like the geniuses that we so desperately want to be?

    But seriously, it thinks you have a USB device (no bluetooth devices?) so either you DO have one like the trackpad/keyboard or maybe and the USB device drivers have been removed/become corrupted or it's possible you have a damaged usb port.

    Do you have a system disk?

    also a hub is still a device

    try deleting the com.apple.usbmuxd.plist file in System/Library/LaunchDaemons/, then empty the trash and restart
    Damien,

    I had a very similar instance to this a couple of years or so ago.
    I had no joy whatsoever in getting my G4 DP 1.25 to sleep, it would make the effort and then come straight back into life.
    No problem, I thought, I'll stop using it and shunt everything over to my newly acquired G5 DP 2.0 instead and retire the G4. I just copied the IDE drives onto new 2 new SATAs and carried over the keyboard, mouse and all the cables.
    Except I now had the same sleep issue with the G5! It didn't have it before I swapped everything over though so I knew it couldn't be the G5. I put back in the original G5 drive and the problem was there also... so it couldn't be software either.
    Swapped over the kb and m, problem went away. Swapped the mouse back... problem gone. Therefore it had to be the keyboard. So, got there eventually.
    The keyboard works perfectly otherwise but has gone in the bin anyway.
    Maybe if I'd looked at the logs first I'd have saved some time!
    Moral of the story...? Disconnect EVERYTHING... if that doesn't work, throw it in the bin!
