I have the latest version of Chrome running on my Mac. I've noticed that even when I close the old intending to put my computer to sleep, Chrome continues running. I know this is the case because I have a Google Voice extension installed. It makes a "ding" noise when I receive a text and that noise comes out of my Mac even when it's supposed to be sleeping.

How do I make Chrome go to sleep along with my Mac? It's sucking the battery dry!

    Well if chrome works then the system isn't sleeping. – Matthieu Riegler Mar 15 '14 at 19:26
  • could you change the ding sound to find out if it is something else, and easy to confirm by looking at the time stamp of the message – Ruskes Mar 15 '14 at 19:27

    With the previous OS X release, Mountain Lion, a feature was added called Power Nap that allows certain processes to run periodically while a Mac is sleeping. I'm not clear on whether third-party apps can do the same; the feature is described here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OS_X_Mountain_Lion#Other_updates – bneely Mar 15 '14 at 19:28
  • @Buscar웃, I'm not sure I know what you mean... I know that it's that Chrome extension. Nothing else makes that same sound. And it happens when I get a text... It's not a question of whether Chrome is running... Because it is... – kentcdodds Mar 15 '14 at 19:28

    @bneely Looks like it's reporting 0... And BackgroundTask is also reporting 0... – kentcdodds Mar 15 '14 at 19:42
