I have the same problem from time to time. Three sims where all sleeping in their dorm (with auto-lights) and the lights where turned on. Later when one of them got up from bed and left the room the lights turned off. Very strange.

Yeah same. I noticed it only happens when all the beds are being used. If there's even one free in the room then the auto lights work just fine.

It's because the Sims are not asleep when your sim goes to sleep. The game just pushed them to just do the sleep animation while in bed. You can click on them and the normal pie menu is going to pop-out instead of just 'wake up'. They will also get up when your sim gets up. I hope they fix [?] or make a better system on the roommate's sleeping schedule on the next patch. Lol.

I am also having this problem, but it seems to be very specific in the following way:

 

If my sim goes to bed before my roommates, the lights will remain on even after my roommates finally go to bed.

If my roommates go to bed before my sim, the lights will correctly turn off once my sim finally goes to bed.

The lights that stay on are in whichever room the roommate sleeps in, whether a separate room or a room shared with my sim.

 

I have autolights turned on for the entire house (type of residence doesn't matter, can be dorm, apartment or house).
