Software :: System Not Exiting Sleep Mode / Kicks Back Into Sleep Mode

Dec 29, 2009

As of last night, my MBP started acting very strangely. After entering my username and password, it would enter the desktop for a short period of time and then kick back into sleep mode; the screen would turn back to black. Sometimes it will let me stay on the desktop for a long time and other times it will hardly let me stay on the desktop. I called apple support and they had me start the computer in safe mode; even then it occasionally kicks me out.

The tech guy said that it was a "strange software issue" and not a hardware issue. I thought it was a hard drive issue; my hard drive makes an odd sound when it unlocks (a grinding sound), but it has been doing that for quite some time with no issues. I tried to reset the SMC and it didn't do anything.

How should I remedy this problem? Is this a hard drive issue? Hard drive failure? Has the grinding sound finally caught up with me? I am running OS X; not leopard or snow leopard. I know I need to upgrade, but this shouldn't be happening.

MacBook Pro ::Won't Fix / Unplugged But Icon Saying Plugged In

Nov 24, 2010

When you unplug power from your MBP, the battery icon is supposed to show the battery level. Right now, mine shows the plug icon and if I click it it says power source is the power adapter. It's sitting in my lap not plugged in.

MacBook :: Showing Its Plugged In And (Not Charging) / While Unplugged

Oct 11, 2010

I'm not sure if this is should be in hardware or software, so I apologize if this is in the wrong catagory.
I have a "5,1" Late 2008 Aluminum MacBook
2.0 Ghz
2 gb RAm

I just replaced the stock 160gb hard drive with a 500 gb Seagate. Everything is working perfectly except for one odd issue:
While plugged in, the MacBook says it is charging normally and appears to actually be doing so. However, when I unplug it, it shows the plug icon on the battery as it does at 100% charge and says "(Not Charging)". Power management wise it also behaves as if it is plugged in. So, as you can imagine that is quite annoying as it doesn't dim / sleep when it should if left sitting and I can't see my battery % when it is unplugged. I have looked EVERYWHERE on the net to no avail. The MacBook is no longer under warranty so no dice there. I have also checked my energy settings as well as reset the SMC.

Software :: PowerBook G4 Crashes In Sleep Mode - How Can I Recover It Back

Jul 6, 2009

I've a problem with my PowerBook G4 (12-inch DVI and Mac OS X 10.4.11). When I close the lid or when I manually try to make it sleep from the apple menu, it goes into sleep mode put only for 1 second and then shuts off (crashes). So instead of being able to wake up the computer, I have to boot it up from off.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Activate Sleep Mode / Turns Back On Immediately

May 15, 2010

I am new to this forum, but hoping I can get an answer here. When placing my Macbook Pro in sleep mode by closing the lid, it goes into sleep mode, but immediately turns back on (with the lid closed), then after a short time goes back into sleep mode and then immediately turns back on. It keeps cycling like this. Any clues to why it will not stay in the sleep mode?

Intel Mac :: Would Not Wake Up From Sleep Mode

May 5, 2012

My Mac would not turn on this morning from sleep mode. I pressed the power button and nothing. Then I did it again and heard the fan shut off inside so I tried again and up it came. Also I cannot wake my Mac up unless I press the power button. I used to press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse and it would wake up, but now that doens't work. I don't know if this could be a reason, but my mother has a horrible habit of unplugging it when it storms. It's always asleep and I've told her not to do that and to make sure it's turned off before ripping the cord from the wall. But she continues to do it when it storms.

Intel Mac :: Won't Wake From Sleep Mode

May 28, 2012

Computer would only start after sleep mode if I unplugged the power cord. The power button would not do anything, even if I held it for a long time.

Shut down and start up would work normally. Only effected sleep mode.

After much trouble shooting I found that I had a bad USB hub. Everything on the bad USB hub would work fine so I didn't suspect it.

Intel Mac :: Power Off Or 'Sleep Mode'?

Jul 1, 2012

Is it best to turn off my 27" i7 processor iMac or put it into sleep mode when it's not in use? ie sleep or leave the house. Also the fan has just turned on, never heard it before. I am watching a video whilst converting another into mp4 format. Is that why?

Intel Mac :: Shut Itself Down In Sleep Mode?

Jul 2, 2012

My iMac shut itself down last night while in sleep mode.  It's rarely ever turned off.  I cannot get it started today. I'm not the most tech saavy person but can follow instructions if someone could walk me through it.   

Purchased in 2006 and has worked well until now.  AppleCare has expired.

Intel Mac :: Why Does It Often Freeze After Turning On From Sleep Mode

Apr 28, 2012

I've been using Pc's for the past 30 odd years so am totally new to Mac. I'm doing my best to adapt to this new different OS and so far have found some things more user friendly but others ? I've more or less given up on those as Mac doesn't seem to do those things. These are probably Windows based and I'm assuming Mac has its own alternatives that I haven't discovered yet. Anyway, my immediate problem is this goddamned frustrating situation when I try to re-activate the comp' after waking it from 'sleep'. Sometimes its fine but others, it comes back on but freezes and the only option I have is to turn it off at the switch and do a re-boot!
