iMac DV SE unable to fully Sleep - OS9

When my iMac DV goes to sleep automatically (that is, after a period of idle time as set in the Energy Saver control panel), it never goes into the full sleep "pulse" mode (where the power light pulses yellow on and off). The only way to achieve this pulse mode sleep is by selecting Sleep manually (as from the Finder's Special menu). Why does this happen? I have AppleTalk, file sharing and any applications except the Finder turned off.  Please help!

Here are some clips from the Apple TIL that youve probably already looked at but ill repost just for the sake of covering all our bases. Also try zapping your PRAM by holding down the command-option-p-r keys before you see the smiley mac at startup. Continue to hold them down until you hear your mac reboot three times. Then release and let it continue to boot. Are there any items in your startup items folder that would be invisible background apps that could keep the cpu active? If so remove them.

The Energy Saver control panel "Put the system to sleep whenever it's inactive for" option is set to Never.
€      When AppleTalk is active the computer may not go to sleep. Check the Chooser.
€      File sharing or web sharing is enabled requiring AppleTalk be active.
€      An internal modem's auto-answer is on. Turn it off.
€      Some third-party applications keep the CPU busy, not allowing idle processor time for sleep to occur. Note which applications are running when the issue occurs.
€      If you have an Apple help file window open the computer will not go to sleep.

**************
Many communications programs can be set up to check the modem port for incoming calls. If so, your computer will not go to sleep automatically (after the specified interval in the Energy Saver control panel). For more information, see the documentation that came with your communications program.
