My mac wakes from sleep for no apparent reason at random times during the night. I can workarouund it by closing the door to my office or turning off the monitor, but I would really like to fix the problem. I have no scheduled events during the night. Here is a screen shot of my energy saver.

Hello,

Your setting should prevent that, but obviously they aren't.

-Which exact model Mac?
-Which version of OS X/macOS?

The first things I would try would be SMC and NVRAM resets.

Mac Mini -late 2012

My age doesn't show on my profile, but it is 81, so please point me to instructions on the resets you suggest.

OK, thanks for the additional information.

If you click the words SMC and NVRAM in my previous post, they are links to Apple's website that give the steps to perform those actions (links show as purple here).

Also, what other devices are connected to the Mac mini?
