I have a Late 2011 MacBook Pro and I just got it back from the repair shop (mainboard was swapped). I immediately installed OS X El Capitan (before it was Yosemite) and found that when I closed the lid, the Mac would not go to sleep anymore. Even testing in other user's accounts and after restarting, resetting NVRAM and SMC and even booting from a different hard disk (with OS X Lion installed), it won't go to sleep and also the little LED on the right will not light up, neither while booting nor when I close the lid. Running
pmset -g assertions in Terminal gave this output:

I have prevented bluetooth devices from waking the Mac, but otherwise I am not sure what to do. Could it be a hardware issue caused by the replacement of the motherboard?
