Thunderbird prevents sleep mode

When i run thunderbird and leave it running computer does not enter sleep mode or hibernation.
If I shut down thunderbird it is all fine and goes to / from sleep mode without any issue.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Take a look at your server settings in Thunderbird. How often does it check for new messages?

Take a look at your sleep settings. How long does the computer have to be idle in order to invoke sleep?
