Why is Opera stopping my Mac sleeping?

I use Opera on an iMac and a MacBook Pro.
MBP is all fine, Opera open and MBP will sleep as per settings no problem.
On my iMac Opera is constantly keeping my iMac awake and I cannot figure out why.
No videos playing, no websites open but still Activity Monitor reports that Opera is keeping the Mac awake. I even changed to a static background from an animated one to make sure it wasn't that, but still it wont. I have to close Opera completely for the Mac to sleep.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Why not close Opera after you finish websurfing? What is the point of leaving it running if it is not in use?

After websurfing you can easily close your opera.

@concretable thank you for this suggestion.
It is not always something I can or want to do.
There are MANY occasions where I am working on something or wish to leave a page open to come back to again in a short time, or indeed the next day, I have many many things going on that would mean I would keep the browser open.
It is not a solution in my mind to be forced to close a browser in order for a computer to sleep when not being used.
