It means that the Find My iPhone service cannot contact the iPod. This could be because it's turned off, or because it's out of range of a known Wi-Fi router. If it's asleep, it will still register on Find My iPhone, so it's either run out of battery or not able to get onto Wi-Fi.

Since com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist got replaced by com.apple.discoveryd.plist after Yosemite Beta, there is another solution for your Problem. All you have to do is to run following command in your terminal: sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Add :ProgramArguments: string --no-multicast" \ /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.discoveryd.plist ...

defaults write com.apple.loginwindow PowerButtonSleepsSystem -bool no Is working for me on 10.9.5, and gives behavior very close to how the power button used to work for me on 10.6. Though there is a bit more of a delay, it's definitely not infuriating anymore. ...

Here is a post I found that might solve your problem. Disable discoveryd: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.discoveryd.plist Enable mDNSResponder: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist First of all though you need to edit com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist to include the ...

I had the same problem with some older versions of Chrome. They had a setting like "Allow background processes to run even when Chrome is closed". Every time Chrome updated to a new version I had to go to settings and uncheck this option, otherwise my MBP won't get to sleep by himself. But this settings is not there any more since some versions of Chrome ...

I resolved this problem. If anyone else runs into it in the future just go to chrome settings and then go to advanced settings and reset settings. It just brought me to default. Something in my settings was causing it. Honestly have no idea what it was.

The message "WebRTC has active PeerConnections" could be a product of your Chrome settings. Paste this "chrome://flags/" in your Chrome web address bar. Find and disable the WebRTC.

Change the routers security to WEP and this problem goes away. However WEP security is less secure and you may have to choose between the lesser of the two evils.

I use Nosleep on My macbook pro. It sits in your menu bar and then you can double click it and once it turns blue, the laptop stays active when you put the lid down with the screen and backlight turning off.

If InsomniaX doesn't work, you could also try macosx-nosleep-extension. Or try to restore the pre-10.7 clamshell mode behavior by running sudo nvram boot-args=iog=0x0 and restarting. When the laptop is connected to an external display, it makes closing the lid put the laptop to sleep, and it makes the internal display stay disabled even after the lid is ...

You can use caffeinate from the terminal.app. Just open the terminal.app and type caffeinate Without arguments it just stays awake until you ctr+C at the terminal. There are more arguments you can use in order to prevent different system components from sleeping.

InsomniaX is a third party program designed to do just that: disabling the sleep mode on a Apple laptops. The program can prevent the Mac entering sleep mode from closing the lid or just idling (or both, of course). It's also possible to disable the sleep mode as per timer, after which the sleep mode kicks in normally.

As to what I'm aware, an SSD does not classify as a hard disk, therefore it will not go to sleep as part of this option. (I'm not even sure you can make them go to sleep to begin with.) Using a laptop with an internal SSD as its only form or storage will make this setting of no use. However if there is say an external HDD plugged in, it will abide to this ...

If you need more control over when to or not to sleep, take a look at Wimoweh. It allows you to never sleep when: specific apps are running, system conditions such has high CPU usage, network connections, etc. $1 on the Mac App store

After a lot of testing on the mother board i found that if you have a faulty battery indicator, or if the battery indicator plug on the mother board is not connected or has come undone, your apple and screen will not go to sleep when closed. this is the plug next to the battery connector on the mother board.

To temporarily stop your Mac from sleeping, you could use Caffeine, a widely-used, free utility available both through the App Store as well as a direct download from the developer's site.

Go to sys pref -Energy Slide the Computer and display sliders all the way to the right (to the never position) If you prefer you can use the build in (by Apple) Terminal command "Caffeinate" to set specific non sleep modes. https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/Manpages/man8/caffeinate.8.html

I have tried to replicate and analyze your problem. The key word here is close the lid and "immediately" open it again. There is a file called com.apple.screensaver.plist located in your user library preferences folder that should change when you change the settings for password timer. While observing it there is actually a slight delay in writing that ...

I've ran into this issue recently and solved it by unchecking: System Preferences > Energy Saver > Wake for network access See this thread on Apple forums - Wifi disconnects after sleep and takes long time to reconnect with Mavericks

According to Apple documentation, "Upon waking, a user login password must be entered before the Mac can be used." If we take that at face value, being able to not enter a password after the system has slept, e.g., you've closed the lid, presents a security vulnerability. http://support.apple.com/kb/PH14125
