comment MacBook does not sleep when lid is closed
Your answer came closest. It turns out that I forgot Caffeine was installed and despite not having an icon in the menu bar like it should when running, it was still somehow affecting the sleep. Maybe it changed some system settings and didn't need to be running to cause trouble.

Very interesting! I'll take a look at these things and get back to you!

I tried running the pmset -g assertions command like it says in that post but all I get is a list of things with 0 at the end except for one item that has EnableIdleSleep 1. I don't know how to interpret this but it doesn't look like a bad thing to me.

I've created a new account and the same thing seems to happen though it seems to be okay in Safe Mode. Any clue as to what may or may not be different in Safe Mode?

My problem is the opposite. It wakes from sleep when the lid is opened if you sleep it but will not sleep if the lid is just closed. Have you read my question?

I'd also like to mention again that it does sleep when booted in safe mode. If the printer driver was causing this but isn't booted in safe mode (which I would think is likely) then it may be the problem.

I think I read about that printer driver at some point but I haven't tried uninstalling any. I'll give it a try. I believe I have also already disabled the wake for network access option but I'll double check anyway, thanks.

I have no sharing options enabled. So far, I've tried PRAM reset, SMC reset, disabling all sharing and bluetooth options.

Thanks, I'll try repairing permissions and creating a new user, hadn't thought of that. I'll let you know how it goes.
