Can't put Mac mini Mid 2011 to sleep

My mac mini (mid 2011, 2,3 GHz Intel Core i5) stopped going to sleep a few days ago. Neither Finder, command line or energy settings are able to put it to sleep. SMC and NVRAM resets didn't help, even reinstalling 10.11.4 didn't solve the problem. No hardware plugged in except screen and keyboard. The display actually goes to sleep, but the mac mini stays awake… Also tried waiting a while for it to go to sleep, but nothing happens.

Here's the console log after I tried to set it to sleep, waited a moment and logged back in. Any help interpreting this is much appreciated!

UPDATE: Starting the mini in safe mode brings back sleep functionality. Now I just have to figure out what's causing the problem, not sure how though…
