MacBook :: Wakes From Sleep When Power Connected And Lid Shut?

Oct 3, 2009

My macbook has developed a problem where when the lid is shut and the power is connected it wakes up from sleep and then goes back to sleep and repeats this process every 30-60 seconds.

What's weird is it doesn't wake from sleep and get stuck in this loop when�the lid is open and the power is connected and I select sleep from the Apple menu�when the lid is shut and the power is NOT connected and is running from the battery

I recently updated my mac to Snow Leopard and put in a new HDD and since doing so the problem has been occurring.

Power Mac G5 :: Wakes Up When Going To Sleep

Nov 30, 2007

I've owned my G5 for 3 years and recently when I put it into sleep mode it immediately wakes back up. I have a screen saver password so it asks me to enter the password, if I don't it goes back to sleep, then immediately wakes up. It repeats this process a few times before finally going to sleep. This is very weird because I haven't installed anything or changed any settings.

Power Mac G5 :: Computer Now Wakes Up Immediately After I Put It To Sleep

Nov 14, 2007

I've got a dual G5 running Panther and I put it to sleep when I go to work in the morning. Last night, I wanted to try out Tiger (yes, I know - I'm way behind the times) so I installed it on a FireWire drive and booted off it for a couple of hours to see how things worked. I then went back to my internal Panther drive, and everything is ok except for one thing: when I hit "sleep", it goes to sleep, the screens turn off, and then for some reason I immediately hear the internal drives spin back up and the thing turns on again! Why can't it stay asleep?

MacBook Pro :: It Does Not Go To Sleep When Power Cord Is Connected

May 4, 2012

I have recently discovered that my MacBook Pro (2009) with OSX Lion does not go to sleep when the power cord is connected. It does not matter if I close the lid or select sleep from the Apple menu. All that happens is that the screen is powered off, the SIL is solid and I can hear the HDD/fan. I have not changed any of my power settings recently and it has not been a problem previously. If I disconnect the power cord the MB goes to sleep as supposed to (the SIL led starts flashing). 

Doing some research I have found other users with somewhat the same issues when VMWare Fusion is installed. I have done some further testing and it seems that if I disable the virtual machine's Network Adapter and quit VMWare Fusion the MB goes into sleeping mode when the lid is closed even with the power cord connected. Enabling the Network Adapter again prevents the MB to go into sleeping mode when the power cord is connected. This even applies when the VMWare application is shutted down. 

My guess is that the Network Adapter somehow prevents the MB to go into sleeping mode. The workaround is of course toggling the Network Adapter on and off but the virtual machine has to be running in order to do so. Not being that familiar with network settings on a Mac is there any other way to get around the problem?

MacBook :: Sleep Doesn't Work With Connected Power Adapter Under Yosemite 10.10.1

Nov 30, 2014

My MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2010) doesn't go to sleep, when I close the lid or when I try to activate sleep under the Apple menu. I haven't changed nothing in the system preferences. I already tried the following: unplugged all USB devices plugged and unplugged external display closed all applications (except of Finder of course) resetted all energy saving preferences deactivated bluetooth checked share options (everything is deactivated) 

Then I unplugged it from the power supply and after I closed the lid, it went to sleep. Then plugged in power supply again and sleep didn't work.

OS X Yosemite :: IMac Locking Up After Sleep Mode Requiring Full Power Shut Down And Rebooting

Dec 7, 2014

iMac 27 locking up after sleep mode requiring full power shut down and rebooting in safe mode then shutting down and rebooting normally.. Permissions and this check show no errors, the only error sleep mode failure. Boot up is very slow as well as wake up when possible is slow. Yosemite seems to need a new release in order to correct the boot problems. System operates more like a Windows machine than Apple machine what's going on?

MacBook Pro :: MBP Wakes By Itself During Sleep?

May 27, 2010

This is has been occurring most every night since I've had this MBP for a few weeks. I put the MBP to sleep at night. Then some point in the morning, I can actually hear it wake, but then quickly, within 5 seconds, it right back to sleep.

I have no programs telling it to awake or perform scans, my Bluetooth mouse is off, etc. Has anyone experienced this or know how to resolve it?

MacBook Pro :: Wakes From Sleep With Lid Closed

Jun 6, 2008

When I go to bed, I like to just put my macbook pro to sleep by closing the lid. But almost 100% of the time it wakes itself. It gets really hot when this happens so I've been turning it off most of the time instead, but I'd really like to get this resolved. I have an external monitor plugged into it so I know its awake as the screen shifts over to the external monitor. When no monitor is plugged into it, I do occasionally hear the hard drive spin up. I have tried unplugging everything except for the power cable to see if that might help, but the result is the same. I have a 1st generation 15" Macbook Pro running OS X 10.5.3.

OS X :: MacBook Pro Wakes From Sleep Randomly

Sep 3, 2009

My MacBook Pro has been waking up from sleep at some of the most random times. Usually it will wake up about 5 minutes after I put it to sleep, and if I'm lucky it will stay to sleep when I try again. Sometimes it will even wake up 30 or 45 minutes after I put it to sleep. Currently, I have it connected to an external display with the laptop screen closed at all times. It is running a fresh install of Snow Leopard with barely any apps installed yet (mainly just iWork and Microsoft Offiice). I was having the same problem when I was running Leopard, thats why I did a fresh install. So this eliminates a software issue.

This has been happening for a few months now, but it has just started to become a problem for me. When I was running Leopard I did not have an external display. It was waking up at random times without anything connected to it (no display, USB, or MagSafe connected). I would be sitting next to my Mac, and all of a sudden, I hear the Superdrive wake up sound. I searched and found a thread similar to this, but hopefully it will not have the same solution as the members of the following thread had: "I had this problem with my Macbook. The fix was a logic board replacement." [URL] I have also attached a screenshot of my system.log in Console. I opened up console as soon as my MBP woke by itself. Hopefully someone here will have some idea what all the stuff in console means or maybe be able to narrow down the problem.

MacBook Air :: Wakes Up Automatically After Few Seconds Of Sleep

Jun 21, 2012

Several times my MBA (mid 2011) woke up by itself after setting it to sleep within a few seconds. Following appeared in the console:
kernel: Wake reason: EHC2kernel: The USB device HubDevice (Port 1 of Hub at 0xfa000000) may have caused a wake by issuing a remote wakeup (2)kernel: The USB device Apple Internal Keyboard / Trackpad (Port 2 of Hub at 0xfa100000) may have caused a wake by issuing a remote wakeup (3)

I did a few resets (SMC etc.) and reinstalled Mac OS the first time. It didn't work. Then I did this all again and reinstalled Mac OS a second time. Both times I wiped the SSD. Now my MBA doesn't wake up again by itself. The Apple Hardware Test also was completed with no issues.But the above posted logs still show up when a wake it up by hitting the keyboard.Are these logs failure warnings or normal entries?

OS X Yosemite :: MacBook Pro Wakes From Sleep Within 30 Seconds

Dec 9, 2014

Since I've upgraded from MacOSX 10.9 to Yosemite, my MacBook Pro wakes from sleep within 30 seconds. I've tried solutions suggested on Google, but they have had no effect (and usually are about MacBook's waking up after 2 hours). 

I'm running OSX Yosemite (10.10.1) on s
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)
2.4 Ghz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Intel Iris 1536 MB
256 Gb SSD with 125Gb free 

To figure our what is going on I've started OSX in safe mode and logged in using the guest account. Also I've turned off WIFI and Bluetooth. The problem still occurs. The syslog shows relatively little from the moment that I select 'Sleep' and the computer wakes again (see below).

MacBook Pro :: Running Windows 7 Unexpectedly Wakes From Sleep?

Jul 1, 2010

I'm running Windows 7 with boot camp on my unibody MacBook Pro.

Quite often, I'll close the lid to put it to sleep, then, a few minutes later I'll notice that the Apple light has turned on, and when I open the lid I confirm that it's woken up.

In Event Viewer, I've noticed that every time this happens, the following event is listed, in the Power-Troubleshooter category: "Wake Source: Device -USB Composite Device".

I have no USB devices, ExpressCards, CDs, or anything plugged in.

EDIT: It doesn't only happen when it's running on battery power, since it just happened with the AC adapter in.

MacBook Pro :: Wakes From Sleep/screen Saver With Different Color Profile?

Dec 26, 2009

I've been experiencing this issue off and on for about the past 10 months. I just upgraded to Snow Leopard tonight and the first time my Unibody MBP's screen saver came on and I got it back to the desktop the entire tint of the screen is intensely cooler. I have to go to Preferences>Display>Color and it automatically goes back to normal. The original "Color LCD" is highlighted, so it's not as if an entirely different profile got selected. If I click on Adobe RGB (1998) I get the exact same cool tint that I get when I unlock after the screen saver appears. Once again, it doesn't happen every time, but it does happen enough to sort of worry me.

MacBook Pro :: Heats Up Immensely Every Time It Wakes Up From Sleep Mode?

I own a early 2011 edition of MBP, with 2.3 Ghz i5 processor and 4 GB ram. Everytime it wakes up from the sleep mode, it heats up with the internal fans constantly on.. Moreover, the estimated battery life shows as 2 hours even when the percentage is 97%.. However, when I restart the MBP, the heating stops and the battery life shows 5 hours..

OS X :: Mac Wakes From Sleep By Itself

Aug 21, 2010

I see my screen popping on for no reason staying on for 5 minuets or so then going back to sleep. Is this normal? I don't recall it doing this before but I have added an old p.c. to my network and got an iPad. Don't know if ether of those things have any relevance but like i said, I don't remember it happening before. From what I understand, to get spyware or malware on the computer I need to instal it. But I could be wrong. I have an iMac running 10.6.4.

OS X :: MBP Wakes Up From Sleep Randomly

Dec 10, 2008

My MBP sometimes wakes up from sleep for no apparent reason. I have it set up in a closed lid/external monitor mode, with a bluetooth keyboard and a wireless usb mouse. To make sure it's not USB activity, I unplugged all USB devices, and switched the USB mouse off. Also made sure "wakeup on ethernet access" is disabled in system prefs, and software update is turned off. Looking at the console, it woke up with a reason:

Wake reason = EHC2 OHC2
Do you know what that is?

Below is a system.log snapshot and console messages when it woke up. Any ideas about what caused it?

I have a hot corner to put the mac display to sleep. Whether I use that or I use the 3 buttons to put the mac display to sleep, it wakes up after a while (probably due to some activity on the net or msn etc...) Is there a way to keep it asleep until I wake it up manually?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: MPB Wakes From Sleep But Then Goes Right Back?

May 7, 2012

having a weird problem since my Lion install. It's happening randomly, with no peripherals attached. I will open my MPB as it has been sleeping closed; the passcode screen will pop up but before I can type, the screen goes black and it goes back to sleep. I press keys, click the trackpad, everything I can think of, but it doesn't respond. When I close the laptop, wait a minute, then reopen, the same thing. The login screen pops up but then blinks out black before I can do anything.
