Tonight I found out that OSX’s Activity Monitor has an “is this preventing sleep?” column you can turn on when you are staring at your computer wondering why it keeps on waking right back up after you tell it to go to sleep.

For the record the offending process was photoanalysysd. Why the fuck should a background process designed to grovel through my photo library ever be able to suppress sleep. Annoying. I force quit that sucker and now my machine is snoozing away. And shortly so will I.

I hope you have enjoyed this bedtime story. Sweet dreams!
