I remember changing some values to disable Deep sleep mode and hibernation a few months ago, and realised that my battery drains faster now. I just want to revert all settings to default. I changed some back such as hibernationmode 3, but not sure if I'm missing anything else.

Are these values normal for a 15" Retina Macbook Pro ? (I'd appreciate if anyone can crosscheck with theirs if you didn't tamper with the settings in pmset -g )

On power :

Active Profiles:
Battery Power       -1
AC Power        -1*
Currently in use:
 standbydelay         7200
 standby              1
 womp                 1
 halfdim              1
 hibernatefile        /var/vm/sleepimage
 darkwakes            1
 gpuswitch            2
 networkoversleep     0
 disksleep            0
 sleep                0
 autopoweroffdelay    14400
 hibernatemode        3
 autopoweroff         1
 ttyskeepawake        1
 displaysleep         60
 acwake               0
 lidwake              1

and on battery :

Battery Power       -1*
AC Power        -1
Currently in use:
 standbydelay         7200
 standby              1

 darkwakes            0
 gpuswitch            2

 displaysleep         5
 acwake               0

…and on battery:

sleep                0
autopoweroffdelay    14400
hibernatemode        3
autopoweroff         1

displaysleep         0
acwake               0
lidwake              1

Please note that I do have a MacBook Pro 13" (Non-retina), however that shouldn't matter.

Do you have an SSD by any chance ? –  Render Mar 15 '13 at 21:10
    
No, I don't - that's possibly why your pmset has more arguments than mine does. If it helps, there's a Wikipedia page on pmset that describes what each of the arguments are: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pmset –  Faiz Saleem Mar 15 '13 at 21:16

Complete answer :

Some options like Sleep and displaysleep, can be modified through Power Saving in the System Preferencespanel.

Wikipedia isn't as complete as the documentation

About the differences with Faiz's pmset :

  • The rMPB has 2 GPU => GPU switch to save power or enhance performance
  • The rMBP has no HDD => SMS (uses sensors in the HDD to protect the HDD) has no use
  • standbydelay : delay before the data present in the RAM is copied into the HDD/SSD. Default is 4200 (seconds, about ~1h), so the computer shifts from sleep mode to deep sleep mode.
  • WOMP for Wake : wake on ethernet magic packet. It's probably display when you are connected with an Ethernet.
  • Darkwakes is some a kind sleep function presented at WWDC 2012 "Power Management"
