I'm trying to follow the steps in this article to make it so the contents of my memory aren't written to disk every time the computer goes to sleep.
I'm having trouble in the "Check the current setup" step. Before changing these settings, I want to make sure I understand it 100% so that I can revert the changes. It says that I should have a setting of
3 if hibernate and sleep is enabled, or
7 if hibernate, sleep and secure virtual memory are all enabled.
I'm on a standard user account, but when I go to System Preferences > Security > General, I see that Use secure virtual memory is enabled.
The problem is that when I run
pmset -g | grep hibernatemode, it returns
3 instead of
Any idea why there is this discrepancy?
