To sleep, perchance to sleep?

After installing Apple’s latest security update, my laptop no longer goes to sleep when I close it. Is anyone else with more time experiencing this?

I am using Bernhard Baehr’s excellent Sleepwatcher, a daemon that allows you to add sleep and wakeup actions, but that hasn’t changed in a while.

(If I had more time, I’d analyze for you the nature of monthly patch packages, and how this is illustrative of one bad aspect of them: Apple makes me change a lot of software that I don’t care about in order to reasonably easily fix the software I do care about.)
