My 27" iMac wakes up from sleep randomly, even though I went through the "energy saver" preference pane, and bluetooth is only active for my mouse and keyboard.

What could be causing this?

  • Can you please run pmset -g assertions in Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) and post the output in a comment? – Alexander Mar 27 '14 at 22:15

In /Applications/Utilities/ run Terminal.app, then type this command:

syslog |grep -i "Wake reason"

What do you see?
