MacBook Pro :: Goes Into Safe Sleep Instead Of (standard) Sleep

Sep 7, 2014

Recently I've started connecting my 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (pre-unibody) Macbook Pro 17" to an external monitor (via DVI).  

Since then my computer goes into Safe Sleep instead of Sleep (it's plugged into power).  

This is an annoyance I'd rather avoid because even if all programs relaunch:I have to wait for them to launch (longer)Programs like Excel seem to have been quit in an unorthodox fashion: when it starts back up I get an error notice that it was shutdown inappropriately & the doc which reopens is a rescued version of the doc I had open before the safe sleep.

OS X :: How To Permanently Disable Safe Sleep & Sleep Image File Creation?

May 21, 2009

In tiger you could easily disable safe sleep and remove the sleep image file but in Leopard this seems to have changed. Yes you can disable safe sleep & remove sleep image files but only temporarily. As soon as you restart or change energy settings back to default, leopard automatically reverts the safe sleep settings to default and starts creating an image file again

Is there no way to permanently disable/remove these?

I posted something up a little while ago.. Just got this Refurb MBP 15.4" 2.66Ghz 320GB HD 9600 512MB And when my computer dies (0%) it doesn't go into regular sleep, so when I plug it back in I can't just hit the spacebar. I don't like this and want to be able to turn this off?

MacBook Air :: Airport Connection/Sleep Versus Sleep Display?

Apr 9, 2008

I leave my Air on pretty much all the time, and put it to sleep while moving around etc. Sleeping it disconnect the Airport connection - which if very annoying. At a desk I've just been dimming the display all the way off in order to keep my connection.

However, I recently noticed that by setting a "sleep display" hot corner, my network connection is maintained.

I have 2 questions:
1) Is sleep display equivalent (functionally) to simply dimming the display all the way down?
2) Is there a way to either set up a shortcut to sleep the display (other than a hot corner) and/or set it so that only the DISPLAY sleeps after 'x' minutes?

MacBook Pro :: Sleep Light Doesn't Blink When MBP Left To Sleep?

Oct 10, 2009

I set the MBP to sleep in 10 min through the Energy Saver pref with the option to sleep the hdds. When it's about to sleep the screen dims, then turns black, then the sleep light comes on but does not blink no matter how long I leave it. The blinking only happens when I close the lid or when I select the Sleep option under the Apple logo. Is that normal behavior?

MacBook Pro :: After Display Sleep Or Computer Sleep On / Login Not On Boot Up

Dec 11, 2014

I have a macbook pro 13" early 2011 and I'm se as shown in the pictures (since i upgraded to os x yosemite) . It happens after display sleep or computer sleep on login not on boot up .I've noticed that i run out of ram when the problem appears (only 15MB RAM available out of 4GB), though i doesn't happen every time . I've talked to service and told me its either motherboard replacement or because the ram isn't enough (gpu shares with main ram) so maybe i should try upgrading ram. URL....

MacBook Pro :: Save To Have Display Sleep But No Computer Sleep?

Jul 12, 2009

I have torrents going all the time. If the computer goes to sleep, the internet disconnects, so they stop. Display sleep wouldn't disconnect though. Is it OK to have computer sleep on "never" but keep display on "15 minutes"? I don't usually even leave the computer on overnight.

Mac Mini :: System Keeps Going To Sleep Mode / Preferences Are Set To Never Sleep

Aug 10, 2009

I am running Mac Mini as a home server (turns out to be not a great idea, btw), and even though I set the preference to never sleep or shut down, it does go to sleep when there is no activity for long time. Since I am using it as home server, it should stay awake all the time or at least wake up from sleep when there is incoming ping from other computer, but it just goes to sleep.

Sleep seems to have stopped working all of a sudden on my recently upgraded iMac. The only thing I remember doing was repairing disk permissions and changing a few iChat preferences.

The console shows the following;

Intel Mac :: It Randomly Goes To Sleep / Previous Sleep Cause: -100?

May 16, 2012

iMac (24 inch Early 2009, 2.93 GHz Core 2 Duo, Lion 10.7.3) randomly goes sleep. No hot corners, never sleep setting.  It seems it goes to sleep more often when CPU is busy and graphic intensive jobs running (videos, gaming). I cleaned up air ways by vaccume, but it did not help. 

Temp monitor showed

power supply 95C
northbridge 89C
graphic processer goes up to 86C

when it went to sleep for no apparent reason./private/var/log/kernel.log says "Previous Sleep Cause: -100"

OS X :: MBP Won't Automatically Sleep Display Or Go To Sleep?

May 8, 2010

I have a late 2008 15" MBP, and I often leave it playing videos while I go to sleep. Lately, it's stopped sleeping the display and/or going to sleep (depending on whether something's downloading in the background) after the video is finished, which is quite annoying as the screensaver's glare normally wakes me up in the middle of the night (and it's probably not too good for the display either).

Before a few weeks ago, it would quite happily sleep the display a few minutes after the video (in Front Row or otherwise) finished playing, but it's now consistently ignoring the sleep and display sleep settings (which are all correct). I even set the display sleep timer to 1 minute, waited without anything happening in the background, but nothing happens.

Anyone have any idea how to get the timers to work again?

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.

OS X :: Macbook Won't Sleep?

Feb 12, 2009

so I've had this issue for a couple of weeks, hadn't really bothered me until recently though. My Macbook isn't going to sleep. I've had it to go to sleep in 15 mins. of inactivity but I've noticed when I am away for a while and comeback only the display is off. I logged out and tried it on my "Troubleshooting" account which has everything at the default settings came back an hour later and it wasn't asleep. Right now I changed the sleep time to one minute and only the display shut off. I don't have any background apps running (that I am aware of) the only thing I could think of is bowtie but I quit that before I tried sleeping it right now.

MacBook Pro :: MBP Does Not Often Sleep

Jul 31, 2009

Last night proved what I've thought for a while. I was online (safari and mail were the only apps running) and left the computer and went to bed. I woke up this morning and the battery was completely dead regardless of the fact there was about 8hrs of battery remaining and it was set to sleep after 20mins of inactivity.

MacBook Pro :: MBP Won't Sleep

Aug 18, 2010

I have the 09 13" MBP, lately it's stopped going into sleep mode automatically. I think it's something software related but not sure. Is there some tool or log built into OSX 10.6.4 that can be used to see what activity is going on in the background to keep the MBP awake?

Before, when I closed the lid on my MacBookPro, it would go to sleep and it would resume when I opened it. Now when I close the lid, nothing happens. It just kicks to the lock screen but doesn't got to sleep. For last resort, I can go to Apple Store, but I want to try anything else first.

MacBook :: Keeps Awaking Itself Up When Put To Sleep

Nov 27, 2010

For info, I have a 2006 Macbook running Snow Leopard. Whenever I put my Macbook to sleep, it keeps waking itself up. I tried the ethernet solution, resetting PRAM, even disabling the Bluetooth device. They've been short fixes but end up coming back a while later. For the record, Bluetooth is listed as "unavailable." To add, I don't have anything plugged in barring my charger. Also, this showed on my console, the bolded parts are interesting:

MacBook Pro :: Won't Turn On After Sleep?

Dec 2, 2010

i'm typing this with a look of scared-********ness on my face...Ok, so i had my MBP (i think it's the 4,1 model, 2.6 core2duo with 4gb ram BTO) connected to my tv and a couple of external hard drives, set it to sleep last night with the lid open, hit the spacebar this morning to wake it and nothing happened
I disconnected frok everything and tried the following to no avail:-Holding the power button turns it off but hitting it again brings it back to the same state, sounds like it's working but keys don't respond and monitor's off.-I tried resetting PRAM but keys don't respond-Took off battery, held power button down for 20 seconds-Took out the two RAM chips and swapped them around-Tried reconnecting the TV to see if it would re-detect monitors-Closed the lid to see if it'll re-sleep and wake up properly but what it does is that the light on the front lights up but doesn't start blinkingAt this point i can't think of anything else to do so please help me out!I'm taking out both battery and RAM chips and leaving it on the bed in hopes it will lose all charge and memory of this ****-up.Btw, there's no warranty and no applecare on it, if push comes to shove i will take it to an applestore but one: i can't really afford that right now and two: i don't really trust them here in greece
