After looking at this program I found information relating to the use of a program called PRO-Tector 6b that acts like a root kit. The poster was unable to put his computer to sleep and he mentioned issues of not being able to spin down the drives. The program was installed at the root level of the Mac and caused all kinds of problems. I know this company uses this scheme and it is dangerous. About 10 years ago Sony came up with a system like this and hosed the PC world.

Check out this post:

If you start having problems with your computer check to see if you have the file in your start up items.

No problems here running Mavericks. iMac sleeps and hard drives spin down with onOne plugins installed. I think your info from 4 years ago is outdated.

My aim was to inform users of past problems in case issues popped up again. The scheme they continue to use has caused problems in the past and may be an issue in the future. My program is running well but I keep an eye on the demon running in the background so if there is a problem, I know where to look first. The software works great but I am not so sure about the company.

I got this when registering Photoshop CS5, and am underwhelmed with its functionality.

Note that this version comes with nalpeirond6 version 6.1.0, an anti piracy/software license daemon that not only always runs in the background (whether you're using Photoshop or not), but also will prevent your Mac from going to sleep. Supposedly fixed in 6.1.2, but that's not what's installed with PhotoTools.
