MacBook Pro :: Hangs Indefinitely On Wake After Long Sleep, Then Fails To Boot

Mar 21, 2012

I installed the latest version of Lion on my mid-2009 13" MBP yesterday. I recently got a Corsair 256GB SSD (model CMFSSD-256D1) and that's what I installed Lion onto. It seems this behaviour has only been happening since I got this SSD. What happens is when I put my computer to sleep for a long period (say, 2 or more hours), when I wake it up, some of my applications show the spinning beachball - though some of the applications still seem to respond. After playing around with the responsive applications for a bit, they eventually start beachballing as well. After a minute or two the entire system is beachballed and I can't do anything. My only option is to do a hard shutdown. (It almost seems like the SSD has decided not to respond to requests?) 

When this happens and I do the hard shutdown, I consistently cannot boot my MBP at this point. I shut it off again, wait a bit, turn it on, and try booting again - nothing. The screen is all white (maybe light gray), and the animated gear never appears. I do hear the boot sound. When my MBP is in this state, none of the special boot options work - e.g., holding down "shift" for Safe Mode, holding down "option" to choose another boot drive, holding down "command+R" to boot from the recovery partition - it's as if I hadn't held those keys down at all. The only keys that do work are "option+command+P+R", which resets the NVRAM. After I've resetted the NVRAM, it still doesn't boot right away. I turn it off again, turn it on, and finally my MBP boots totally fast and fine. I do a check of the disk and there are zero disk/permission errors. 

This is totally reproducible behaviour. Every time it's in sleep mode for a few hours, it does this, and I can't boot, and the only way I can boot is by following those steps above. 

If I put the MBP in sleep mode for just a couple minutes to test it, it comes back from the sleep fine. I'm not sure how long it has to be in sleep mode before it decides to beachball on wake. 

I have done a search for new firmware for my SSD and have come up with nothing.

MacBook Pro :: Startup Takes Indefinitely Long

Mar 21, 2012

Lately I have been having troubles with my Mac Book Pro 13", updated to OS X 10.7.3.

I noticed it takes reaaaaally long to startup after updated OS to the latest version, as with the previous one it was working just fine. 

Most of the times, it crashes before being able to load all information on desktop (Note: I always quit all applications before switching it off, so it doesn't have to load any of them) 

Once it started, then it works ok, not even particularly slowly.

MacBook :: Won't Boot Up / The Laptop Fails To Boot Up?

May 11, 2009

Just recently got back from a visit to my local Apple store in regards to a faulty power adapter. My Macbook started up fine at the store, as it has over the past two years. However, after getting home and trying to turn it on, the laptop fails to boot up. It sits at the grey screen with the Apple-logo and spinning progress circle, all while the fan starts to whirl as if my macbook were on fire. I've experienced a failed hard-drive before, so I know of the folder w/question mark screen, and this screen is not like that. I've also tried booting up in "Safe-Mode," but that won't work as well. I do have a start-up disk and external hard-drive... I'm just curious to see what other options I might have before reinstalling Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Wake Out Of Sleep?

Jul 11, 2007

I put my 3 day old MBP to sleep last night with a 90% battery level (with the A/C adapter unplugged). I had calibrated the battery the day before. This morning, when I opened the lid, nothing happened. I thought this was odd. I then pressed the power button and heard about 1 second of the startup tone and then nothing. I repeated this twice more with the same result. I then plugged in the A/C adapter and the MBP booted up. The battery level was 86%. What do you think has caused this? Do I have a defective battery or something more serious?

MacBook :: Won't Wake From Sleep

Feb 3, 2009

However, twice now when I've run the battery down (as recommended to keep the battery healthy), and then put it to sleep and plug it in, when I try to wake it up later, it won't start. Powering on and off just lead to a little "click-whirr" and the power light pops on and off, but no action. I called applecare and they said to unplug it, take the battery out, leave it out for a bit, then put it back in, then plug it back in, and restart it. It worked (although the second such crash, it took two tries for unclear reasons). Needless to say, this is a bit frustrating. Is this a known problem? Should I do something to avoid it? Is it a lemon?

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Will Not Wake From Sleep

May 17, 2012

I've lived with this as long as I care to live with this. My 17" MacBook Pro will not wake from sleep.  Space key, mouse click, closing lid and re-opening, disconnecting power and reconnecting -- nothing works.  When the display goes to sleep I have no alternative but to force a reboot with the power button.  I can't see how this can be good for my hard drives.  But to set the machine to never sleep will likely damage the display. 

I believe my firmware is up to date.  I'm running OS 10.6.8.  I recently reinstalled system software and updated everything but the problem persists. 

Here is my system info: I await your collective wisdom to flow over me.

MacBook Pro :: Went To Sleep And Couldn't Wake Up

Jun 18, 2012

I seem to be having a real run of bad luck at present! I was updating software which was going to take a while so had my dinner whilst this was happening, came back and MacBook Pro had gone to sleep and would not wake up! When i closed lid the light then came on and it would not go off however as soon as I lifted lid ...nothing. So did (another) safe reboot and hence I'm writing to communities again (twice in one day).

It's been a while now that my mac pro 13" (july 2011 version with lion) either doesn't wake up from sleep (or appears so because the screen stays turned off) or it does but when asked to log back in, I type the password and press enter, and the colored wheel shows up and stops responding...not even gets to log in. I have to hard reset with the power button.

MacBook Pro :: Panic After Wake From Sleep?

Jun 27, 2012

I put my (early 2010, i5, 8Gb RAM, 500Gb HDD, OSX 10.7.4, all other software up to date) MacBook pro to sleep by closing the lid, it goes to sleep, then minutes or hours later I go to wake it up again by opening the lid and see the screen flash briefly (with whatever I was running before sleeping) but then the screen goes black and the MacBook does not respond to anything but a hard reset.I have done the following via tech support or my own research:

Hard drive verified and repaired (it found some folder problems but fixed them) all clear, also memory all clear (using Rember, overnight), opened it up and re-seated just in case, permissions all good. It doesn't run particularly hot either (and the issue only ever happens when it's trying to wake from sleep, so it's cold anyway). Cleared SMC, PRAM, Caches, Started in Safe mode.

I have also removed everything from my Login startup group except for EvernoteHelper and BetterTouchTool, I'm running Chrome as my browser but I tried unintsalling it and moving to Safari but this didn't help either.Issue is still happening, I would guess maybe 50% of the time I open to wake up but mostly when it has been asleep for more than an hour (the case is completely cold).

When I restart the "error report" screen comes up with the following

Interval Since Last Panic Report:414234 secPanics Since Last Report: 4Anonymous UUID:25C06CD4-2D86-43A6-9B1E-CE92D326E89A  Tue Jun 19 08:49:54 2012panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff7f80a7a947): NVRM[0/1:0:0]: Read Error 0x00000100: CFG 0xffffffff 0xffffffff 0xffffffff, BAR0 0xd2000000 0xffffff8113f5e000 0x0a5480a2, D0, P2/4Backtrace (CPU 2),


The only thing I haven't done is an extended hardware test (will do that tonight) and a complete clean install (which I would really rather avoid).

MacBook :: It Takes Long To Go To Sleep

May 30, 2012

My macbook used to take about 5 seconds or less to go to sleep when I would manually put it to sleep. It now takes about a minute for it to go to sleep. I read on a forum that you may have a job stuck in the printer que. This is not my problem. I've tried to start in safe mode and it's still not fixed. I've also checked the permissions and repaired those.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Wake From Sleep - Lid Light Very Faint

Feb 12, 2009

Last night after I shut my MBP, I went to re-open it a few minutes later to find the computer to do nothing. If I try a hard restart with the power button it sounds like it is going to boot but nothing happens. The only real indication I have that it is even on at all is the light on the lid latch is on but not pulsating. When the lid is up the light is very faint and when the lid is closed the light is bright. I have tried most of the things i saw on the apple support site with no luck.

MacBook :: White Doesn't Wake From Sleep

Apr 6, 2009

I've heard that Macbook Pro's have this issue, but it seems like my white Macbook is exhibiting this sometimes. It's not a lot but I've encountered it about 3-5 times now. When I just close the lid, the little white light at the front should glow and unglow. It seems like the light stayed lit so when I open the lid the screen wouldn't turn on and there is no response and I would be forced to cold boot. My Macbook is up to date, with no problem in diagnostic.
