iGetter seems to be preventing sleep in 2.9.3. I have been investigating why my MacBok Air is running out of batteries so quickly when sleeping and it appears that iGetter is preventing sleep mode even when nothing is being downloaded.

The command pmset -g provided details of sleep settings and lists iGetter as preventing sleep. I have played with the settings but can't get it off the list without closing igetter.

Any ideas?



pmset -g
