NMS is a run and stay-open AppleScript application that has been made faceless (doesn't show up anywhwere in the GUI when it's running) that every so often checks in and when it sees the system has been idling for long enough, or the screensaver is running, it puts the system to sleep using a much less ignorable version of the sleep command than Energy Saver uses.
Issues of Note Regarding Bluetooth: A number of Bluetooth input devices can cause sleep problems, especially 3rd party Bluetooth mice. NMS can force sleep but it can't keep a rouge mouse or headset from waking the system back up. See author's site for more details.
Project has been abandoned. Mac.MajorGeeks.Com keeps abandoned freeware programs available to download for anyone who might be looking for them.
