MacBook Pro :: Suddenly Go To Sleep Mode Due To Overheating
I think my 2010 15" i7 MacBook Pro is overheating. Today when I was in bootcamp playing the sims 3 my MacBook suddenly went to sleep. I checked the MacBook and it was super hot. The MacBook was in clamshell mode with a monitor keyboard & Mouse.

MacBook Air :: 13" Suddenly Takes 30 Seconds To Enter Sleep Mode
My late 2010 13" MBAir (4GB RAM, otherwise base model) suddenly takes 30 seconds to enter sleep mode, whereas it took just a few seconds before. Wake up is still as instant as ever. I have tried rebooting, disabling bluetooth and Airport, even resetting the SMC. However, I'm still very new to OSX so there's a good chance there's something I'm just not seeing.

It's the same behavior when I close the lid as it is when I send it to sleep through the Apple menu - if I keep the lid open or reopen it right after closing, the display will come on and show nothing but a black screen with the cursor on it (movable, too).

Actually shutting down takes no more than three or four seconds, too. All that really takes a while is entering sleep mode.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard Trackpad Stops Working After Sleep Mode Ends
I got a brand new Macbook Air the other week.I noticed that sometimes, after folding the computer (with the OS running), then unfolding it - the keyboard and trackpad are not responding at the login screen. Actually if I press the keyboard it lights up properly but there is no access to the system. The only thing that works is the power button, so every time I have to power down the computer, then back on again.

OS X Leopard :: Trackpad Not Working After Sleep Mode
Every time my MacBook goes to sleep, my track pad gets messed up. I cant tap to click, or scroll without pushing the button. I have tried going into my system settings to adjust the trackpad options, but they dont take effect. The only way to get it back to normal is to restart the computer all together.

ITunes :: Its Airplay Not Working After Sleep Mode
I have an airport express that is configured properly but for some reason iTunes cannot find it after it wakes up in the morning. To fix it I have to restart the computer. My computer is connected to a time capsule via an ethernet cable and the airport express extends the same network wirelessly. My computer goes to sleep everynight at 1 am and wake up at 7am. I like my coffee and bbc every morning and am tired of having to go downstairs to the restart my computer to get the airplay working again. This started happening about four or five months ago.

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

Intel Mac :: Wifi Stop Working After Sleep Mode?
I have two different iMacs: late 2011 and Mid 2010. Both imacs wifi stop working after sleep mode. ***?! Ipod and iphones work properly at is time. I have checked disk utils and fixed permissions. Everything is updated. Maybe there is the way to reenable wifi module without rebooting my computers?

Im very dissapointed apple imacs. Lcd of mid 2010 being changing for the second time. Last time it worked ok for 5 month. ***?! Is it ok for lcd screen? Or maybe I should turn into hackintosh to avoid poor-quality hardware? Rofl. **** I have only apple devices and starting nervous about it.

OS X Tiger :: Disabling Screen Saver & Sleep Not Working In Startup Disk Mode
I have an issue that cropped up that I don't know how to deal with. I am using Drive Genius ver 2.1. For certain functions Sleep and Screen Saver must be disabled and run from the Drive Genius CD by restarting the computer and holding down the "c" key. It has been working fine for a year or so. Yesterday, after disabling the the Screen Saver and Sleep in System Preferences and then booting from the D.G. CD and using the program in Startup Disk mode, the computer went to sleep even though it was disabled in "regular boot" System Preferences. I spoke with D.G. tech support they had never heard of this happening and thought it was an OS/Apple Startup Disk issue. Is there any way to reset/force set/reassert System Preferences in the Sartup Disk Mode or to identify what is happening??

MacBook Pro :: Going To Sleep Mode Right After Boot?
I boot this nearly brand new macbook pro and the second you see a mouse appear in the top left corner of the screen the laptop switches to sleep mode and never wakes. I am forced to hold power button to turn off and back on. I tried to boot from cd but it seems to not respond to key presses. I will try an external keyboard for that but the bigger issue it the boot/sleep.

MacBook Pro :: Optical Out Seems To Go In Sleep Mode
I've a really weird problem on my MBP audio out. Apparently the optical out seems to go in "sleep" mode in less than a second of inactivity, turning off the speakers which takes like a second to turn on. The result is that any short, silent-preceeded sound is completely not played. The behaviour is also described in this thread. [URL]

MacBook Pro :: Not Come Back From Sleep Mode
I have a 1 month old MacBook Pro 13", and I have been having an annoying issue for the past few days. My Macbook Pro goes to sleep, but then it doesn't wake up. Everything remains black (keyboard, screen), and whether it's plugged in or not. So I have to keep the power button pushed till it turns off and start it again.

Another weird thing is that when I turn it on again, it comes back from a disk image, as if does after running out of battery, with the white progress bars in the bottom of the screen. So far I have tried:

Repairing permissions with Disk Utility
Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC):
Resetting the Mac's PRAM and NVRAM:

Since I have tried these solutions, my Macbook Pro sometimes have a new issue: when I try to start it, the front light blinks rapidly and then there's a loud beep. Then, I have to keep the power button pressed and start it again.

MacBook Pro :: Never Stays In Sleep Mode?
Whenever I close the lid to my MacBook it'll go to sleep by turning off the harddisk and the light is blinking. But when I go to pick it up or even move it the Superdrive makes a noise as if its searching for a disk and the apple on the lid/monitor blinks on and off. Basically the computer never really stays in sleep mode.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Restart After Sleep Mode
I was using my Macbook Pro, finished, put it to sleep and left for a few hours. When I came back it was off. I try to turn it on and the power light comes on and I can hear the disk for about 3 second and then it just shuts off again. I searched the apple support site for this problem and I've done these things. [URL]. I play computer games on it and often the battery would drain. I would plug it in when the 10 minute warning came up, and the little light on the MagSafe plug would turn from green to amber. Lately it had been turning back to green even though the battery icon on the screen said the battery wasn't charged, sometimes the computer would even shut down even though it was plugged in (again, it was plugged in and the light was green, even though the battery icon said it wasn't charged). Maybe it's related to my computer not turning on?

MacBook Pro :: Boots Into Sleep Mode
I have an older style MBP, 2.2, running 10.4.3, and the other day after using it about an hour I put it to sleep. After another hour or so I opened it to use it again. Usually just opening it will wake it from sleep. It didnt so I tried pressing any buttons, no luck. Held the power button til it turned off. Tried to boot up but the screen stayed black and the sleep light went on, but did not pulsate. Tried that a few times with the same result. I also tried hooking up an external monitor, just got "no signal".

MacBook Pro :: Gets Very Hot While In Sleep Mode - How To Cool It Down
I put the MPB into sleep mode, put it in my backpack, and when I open it a couple hours later, the machine is very hot to the touch and the fan is whirring away. On opening the lid, the display will not come back and the only way to fix it is a hard restart.

I checked the battery indicator on the side, and surprisingly, it had 3-4 green dots, so it had plenty of power.

MacBook Pro :: AirPort Turns Off In Sleep Mode
I have a MacBook Pro and when at home I use the built in AirPort to connect to the internet via my wireless router. Over the last two days an odd new behavior has developed. When I put the computer to sleep, then wake it up later, AirPort has been mysteriously turned off. I go into System Preferences and turn it back on, and everything is fine, but I wonder why this is happening in the first place.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Wake Up From Sleep Mode - Not Restarting
I have never had any problems with my macbook pro until last night. I opened my mac and it didn't start up or come out of sleep mode like it normally does, I clicked the button and allowed it to restart but nothing happened. It made the usual booting up noises and the fan started but my mac never turned on. I let the battery drain and this morning tried again, it started up like normal until one of my cats bumped the power cord, the whole thing shut off and hasn't started since, I have tried rebooting it, letting what was left of the battery drain, and also letting the battery fully charge. Nothing seems to be working and I am completely frustrated because all of my school files are located on my mac. I don't have the new snow yet, (I'm a bit of a broke college student) and it is an original from 2008.
