I recently installed the Sonos S1 Controller app on my Mac.
During the installation process it asked if I wanted the app to control my machine’s sleep settings, so that it could play music from my Music folder uninterrupted. I clicked Yes.
But I didn’t realise that even when the Sonos app was no longer running my Mac would no longer go to sleep. Not even my display will go to sleep now, even though the system preferences are set for it to go to sleep after 5 minutes.
I’ve restored the default settings in my Energy Saver system preferences so that “Prevent computer from sleeping automatically...” is now turned off. But it hasn’t fixed it.
I’ve also checked my Activity Monitor to see what apps are preventing sleep and there are none (even the Sonos contoller says it is not).
I couldn’t see any settings within the Sonos app itself to allow me to change the sleep preferences.
Does anyone know if there are settings anywhere else that I can change that will allow my computer and display to go to sleep again?
Thankyou for any suggestions

I really cannot believe that Sonos would add a script. Have you tried restarting the Mac after changing the setting?
