I am using MacOS Catalina 10.15.3. I am having a problem with sleep mode, when I check by pmset -g, it is reported that the sleep mode sleep prevented by powerd, sharingd. How can I fix this issue.enter image description here

  • hi @vietanhle! may I ask why that concerns you ? And whether file sharing (or any sharing for that matter) is on ? is power nap on, in power Saving preferences ?

I was able to fix this problem by noticing that in system.log, sharingd seemed to be invoked by rapportd. And rapportd is used by HomeKit. So I went into System Preferences, iCloud settings, and unchecked "Home". This cleared it up.
