MacBook Pro :: Its Not Waking Up From Closed Clam-shell Sleep?

Feb 2, 2012

I've been having problems with my mid 2009 2.53GHz MacBook Pro 15" not waking up from sleep after I open the clamshell (screen) back up.  When I open the screen after letting it sit for a while, I can hear the HDD spinning up and the status light on the bottom of the MacBook turns off (like it normally does when the clamshell is opened), but the screen is black and there is absolutely no response in any key combinations or trackpad taps.  I've been having this problem for about a month now and its getting pretty annoying.  I've tried a total wipe of the disk and a fresh Lion install with a full TimeMachine restore, but I'm having absolutely no luck.  The only thing that can bring the MBP back to life is a hard restart.  Sometimes when I hard restart it, it comes back to life right where I let off (basically like when the battery loses all its juice and restores everything thats open), but most of the time, it starts up like a normal boot with no restore.

OS X :: Malware/Network Activity Is Constantly Running Even Browser Closed?

Aug 15, 2010

I'm running an Intego X6 full scan right now, but something is amiss:
1. Activity Monitor shows 19 packets in/sec, 22 packets out/sec, currently at 26024 packets in and 24996 out since rebooting maybe 10 minutes ago)
2. iStat shows 4k in/out per sec
3. My router's activity light incessantly blinks
4. My router won't light up at the initial login, so the issue only happens with my current user account

When disabling all internet activity through Intego's firewall, my router also stops. Amusingly, Activity Monitor continues to show packets being sent and received. (I didn't see anything in Activity Monitor that would show me which process(es) are using the network as well...)

I can't seem to find any PID or process names out of the ordinary, but usually there should be no activity when there's no activity.

I do keep OS X updated as often as possible, but that doesn't mean something wicked this way comes...

Are there apps I can use that will tell me what process is sending these mystery packets?

MacBook Pro :: Use Computer In Closed Clam-shell (display Closed) Mode With An External Display?

Jun 4, 2012

I have an 13" MBP that I ordered new in April, 2012. It is running Lion. I have an external monitor that is capable of 1440x900 resolution. I have an external keyboard and trackpad hooked up, and I like to close my MBP up and stick it in a BookArc. I want to be able to have the internal display disabled and to have the MBP only allow me to put windows on the external display, so long as the lid is closed. I also want to be sure that I am taking advantage of the resolutions available on my external monitor, which are higher than those supported by the internal display (specifically 1440x900). 

This doesn't seem to work because I either have to allow the MBP to continue to draw my desktop across both screens (internal and external), OR use the "mirror displays" mode, which restricts my resolution of my external monitor. This means I either forgoe the additional resolution benefits of my external monitor, or I end up with windows that fall off-the-cliff, so to speak, because they are drawn in the portion of the desktop that would be shown on my internal display (which is closed). 

I've read the community support pages on using the MBP with an external monitor, most relevantly, this page. It simply recommends using the "mirror displays" option. However, this option, as I mentioned above, doesn't allow me to make use of the additional resolution, and my external display looks bad. how to keep the 13" MBP in closed clamshell position, with the internal display disabled, and use my external monitor at resolutions higher than those allowed by the 13" MBP but which are available to my external monitor when not in "mirror displays" mode?

OS X :: MacBook Keeps Waking Up By Itself

Apr 20, 2010

When I close my macbook lid after about 15 seconds the logo on the outside flashes like the laptop has woken itself up again. it does this repeatedly and the only way to stop it is to shut down the computer completely. I've been searching the web for answers and there seem to be many people having the same problem. One website suggested typing something in terminal. I'm pretty amateur when it comes to computers. But this comes up:

Usage: pmset [-b | -c | -u | -a] <action> <minutes> [<action> <minutes>...]
pmset -g [disk | cap | live | sched | ups | batt]
-c adjust settings used while connected to a charger
-b adjust settings used when running off a battery
-u adjust settings used while running off a UPS
-a (default) adjust settings for both
<action> is one of: displaysleep, sleep, disksleep (minutes argument)
or: reduce, dps, womp, ring, autorestart, powerbutton, halfdim,
lidwake, acwake, lessbright (with a 1 or 0 argument)
or for UPS only: haltlevel (with a percentage argument)
haltafter, haltremain (with a minutes argument)
or: hibernatefile <path> hibernatemode <integer>
hibernatefreeratio <integer percent>
hibernatefreetime <integer ms>
e.g. pmset -c dim 5 sleep 15 spindown 10 autorestart 1 womp 1
pmset schedule [cancel] <type> <date/time> [owner]
pmset repeat cancel
pmset repeat <type> <days of week> <time>
<type> is one of: sleep, wake, poweron, shutdown, wakeorpoweron
<date/time> is in "MM/dd/yy HH:mm:ss" format
<time> is in "HH:mm:ss" format
<days of week> is a subset of MTWRFSU
[owner] optionally describes the event creator

MacBook :: Waking Up / Not Going To Sleep?

Apr 13, 2009

I just occasionally have noticed my Blackbook, running 10.5.6, when I open it after closing it and moving elsewhere say, may have lost a lot of it's battery power. I think what's happening is it's not going to sleep properly (or it's waking up) when closed. This of course leaves me with not enough power (today 8% when I opened up). What concerns me much more is that the HD arm might not be in the parked position and damage could result with me travelling around. I have in fact had two complete HD failures in 2 1/2 years (though I have no reason to believe this is the cause, in fact I doubt it). I'm aware I can press the power button then select SLEEP and I often do when I'm just charging at home and want to keep the temp down (it's hot here!). Very interested to know what's going on fact interested in the bigger picture of HD arms when the things spinning as I use my Macbook outside and on my lap a lot, and can't help some movement of course. I emphasise when I shut the lid it normally sleeps as normal, this is just an occasional thing. So is it dangerous, what's causing it, and what about the bigger pic on HD arms when moving the laptop around?

MacBook Air :: Keeps Waking Up From Sleep?

May 3, 2009

My girlfriends Air has suddenly gotten a weird problem lately. Every now and then when she wakes it from sleep it seems to think that it has a second display connected to it. Even rebooting doesn't always solve the problem.

She has never used an external display with it before. The port looks clean (I thought there might be something there causing a short) and as far as we know there hasn't been any tinkering with any system files on her computer.

Anybody ever heard of this problem before? Or have any idea how to fix it?

MacBook Air :: Sometimes Running Hot After Waking Up?

Mar 24, 2012

I have an i5 13" air. Sometimes after waking up from sleep I notice that nothing is running, all applications are closed, yet the temp according to istat is between 75c-82c.  I checked the processes and the cpu is barely being hit. Yet the temp stays at those levels. I restart and everything is under 55c with like 4 apps running.

MacBook Air :: Wifi Not Waking Up From Sleep

Mar 28, 2008

I am not sure if this is related to the other wifi issues posted on this thread. I am hoping it is an easy Leopard configuration thing. But my wifi used to work perfect--until I patched my OS version. Now, whenever open the lid, it can never connect to my wifi router immediately like it used to do. It spends cycles hunting, and I end up having to manually go into network preferences and try a few times to connect, including rekeying the password.

OS X :: MacBook Crashes On Waking Up From Sleep

Apr 15, 2009

I have a late 2008 macbook, and occasionally after going into sleep via closing the lid or according to the sleep timer, it doesn't really want to wake up. I open the lid/press spacebar and the computer sounds like it's waking up, the keyboard lights up, but the screen stays dark. I've tried waiting for up to 30 seconds before eventually I just hold the power button and hard reset. Upon restart, there is an error message stating that os x crashed. I haven't been able to let it sit for more than a minute or two, as it usually happens when I'm getting ready to give a presentation or something, fun right.

MacBook :: Waking Up From Sleep On Its Own After 10.5.5 Installed

May 28, 2009

I have a 2.4 Penryn black MacBook. It's been waking up on it's own, overheating and shutting down since I installed 10.5.7. This happened when I first got it, and I took it to Apple. At that time, seems the RAM wasn't seated properly. It hasn't been a problem again until now. Yesterday, it did it twice. The RAM seems to be seated properly. Is there a firmware update or something I'm missing?

MacBook Pro :: Disc Ejected When Waking?

Aug 5, 2009

If I have a disc in the dvd drive when I either turn on my computer or wake it from sleep, the disc will almost always be ejected.

If I then put it back in, it will usually self-eject another 3 or 4 times before it will actually spin up and be recognized by the MBP.

MacBook Pro :: Partial Waking But No Display?

Feb 24, 2010

I'm having a serious issue here. It's very intermittent which makes it very difficult to "treat."

Every once and a while, I put my MacBook Pro (17" Unibody, 2009, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD 5400) to sleep and when I go to wake it up, you can hear the hard drive spinning up and you can feel the fans (not running fast at all; normal) if you put your hand by the vent... but no display. When I close the screen again, the pulsing light just stays steady. The hard drive and the fans continue to go. They never stop. It's happened ten times in the past month and it's driving me insane. I've found it in the Console, take a look here -- click for large version.

What are your thoughts? What does this mean?



The only way I can get back to my computer is if I force shut down my computer. I've damaged the hierarchy of files by doing that (spotlight has had to reindex, sometimes I've had to boot up off my Snow Leopard disk and run disk utility to get it back to working).

I have reset the SMC and PRAM. It didn't fix it. Again, it happens so intermittently that I can never point out what causes it, if anything in particular does.

I'm about to sell my computer and I really need to get this fixed. Thoughts, anybody?

MacBook Pro :: Its Not Connecting To Internet When Waking Up

Mar 17, 2012

When I wake my two-week-old MacBook Pro up, my Airport Base Station's wireless network shows connection, but I do not have internet for a much, much longer period of time than normal. This only started a few days ago. Prior to that, it was working just fine.

I've tried closing my browser (Chrome), starting another browser (Safari), and restarting. All of these attempts have met with success and failure. Sometimes, doing nothing and waiting for ~2 minutes does the trick.I'd simply like my MBP to connect to the internet ASAP upon waking up.I did no software upgrades recently

OS X :: MacBook Keeps Waking Up - No Constant Sleep Mode

May 31, 2007

I'm using my Mac on an external monitor with a USB keyboard/mouse and the lid closed. When I put it to sleep using the remote, it switches off but then re-awakens about 5 seconds later. It's really annoying as it's usually when I'm in bed after watching a video and am too tired to get up and switch it off manually. How to make it sleep? Could it be the USB peripherals making it act this way? If so, how can I stop my Mac from waking on USB?

MacBook Air :: Mouse Freezing When Waking Up From Sleep?

Dec 28, 2008

my air is rev B with SSD. when i open the lid to wake it up from the sleep, the mouse is freezing for couple of seconds and then back to normal.

it's not tthe whole OS freezing i believe, because ical event suddenly appears on the desktop when the mouse is freezing. so it's not the system i guess.

could it be the lack of voltage because of coolbook? but the system is so stable with these new lower voltages settings i applied a week ago.

MacBook Pro :: No Password Dialog Box After Waking Up From Sleep?

Oct 3, 2009

Sometimes when I let my MBP (see sig) go to sleep with the screen open, I come back and hit the spacebar to wake it up and it doesn't give me the password dialog box to wake it from sleep. All i see is a black screen with the mouse pointer on it. This sometimes happens when I wake and DO get the password box but if I wait and don't enter the password right away, the box disappears and wont come back. In both cases I'm forced to push the power button to shut it down and restart. Any solutions to this, or is it just a fluke?

OS X :: MacBook Freezes Upon Waking Up From Sleep Mode

Feb 2, 2010

Whenever I close my computer to put it to sleep and then open it up later, the computer freezes and I am unable to type in my password to unlock my computer and am forced to hold down the power button until it turns off and then reboot it. This has become a major pain and has only started today but has happened 3 times already. I have an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and a Magic Mouse connected to my computer and am running 10.6.2 if that helps. I'd rather not have to shut down my computer all the time and I'm no longer covered by any protection.

Software :: MacBook Pro Screen Display Not Waking Up

Jan 16, 2010

I was using my Macbook Pro this morning and it was working perfectly as normal. I did a standard shut down and when I tried to turn the machine back on the display would not wake up. The machine itself is booting fine, it still makes the gong sound when booting up and I can adjust the volume and turn the caps lock on and off. I just cant see anything as the screen remains black.

I have tried the P&R boot twice and also took the battery out and removed the power source and pressed the power button for 15 secs and put it back together and tried to reboot with no change. This same issue happend about 2 months ago and a friend who worked for apple knew a command to turn on the screen and ever since there has not been a problem. Unfortunately my friend is in Australia and I'm unable to contact him. I have a University assignment due at the end of the week and I use the laptop for work so I'm really panicing!
