Cheers, John. Thanks, this great tip also solved my problem. That printer had one job in queue and kept like you said my mac from going into sleep mode. Bruno, you rock my good sir.

I simply deleted a pending printing job and my computer went to sleep like a baby. Not going to sleep neither automatically nor the forced sleep made me crazy — I even updated to Sierra ;- Kept me busy way too long to find the reason! Checked all printers and there it was: Deleted that job and used the forced sleep and the Mac mini actually went to sleep right away.

I had this problem so many times on different Macs in the past and never found out what actually resolved the problem. I deleted it and now my mac can sleep again! Ok, now I know that ExternalMedia is preventing sleep but how can I fix it? This one is the hero of the day, thanx a lot!

I think it was related to i share my printer by wifi, but at least now i know what to do. Happy new year and thanx a lot for this article!
