Computer randomly un-idles

Postby HooRide » Fri Jun 24, 2011 8:05 pm

A few times a week I'll get back to my computer and I have messages waiting for me where people thought I was at my computer. They said my status went from idle/away to available and then back to idle/away after 10 minutes (the time I have set in the prefs to change status to idle/away).

Twice now I've been in my office and have seen this happen: my screen will come out of power save mode even though the mouse is off and in its charging cradle and Adium lists me as 'available.'

Any ideas on what's causing my computer to wake up? Are there any log files that might point to the culprit?

A reinstall of 10.6 made no difference but the problem is no longer here with 10.7.

I've noticed this too. The monitor will come on to the lowest brightness setting regardless of whether it turned off by itself or if I turned it off with the keyboard. Why do you think it is adium, though? (I have several apps running, so being able to narrow it down to one culprit would be useful)
